The automatic word hyphenation feature enables a Block element to automatically break and hyphenate words, based on current layout conditions. This enables long words to begin on one line and continue on this next, and tends to achieve a more even distribution of white space in justified text. Words are broken and hyphenated according to standard grammar rules.
