Hello!

One of the things that seems to have been overlooked is the
hyphenation character. Not all languages use - (U+2010 HYPHEN) for
hyphenation. Some languages use their own hyphenation characters. I
work with Church Slavonic, which uses the underscore _ (U+005F Low
Line).

There are other examples; see also the discussion here:
https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=85731


It should be possible to specify the hyphenation character either
through CSS or in the l10n module.

Yes, agreed. Some additional hyphenation controls (including this) are specified in the next level of CSS Text, and we’d like to see implementations take them up:

Thanks,
