# -ms-hyphenate-limit-lines property

Specifies a value that indicates the maximum number of consecutive lines in an element that may be ended with a hyphenated word.

## Syntax

```-ms-hyphenate-limit-lines: no-limit | <integer> ```

## Property values

One of the following values.

`no-limit`

Indicates that hyphenation is not limited based on the number of consecutive hyphenated lines. In the flow above the consecutive hyphenated lines limit would be an infinitely large positive number.

integer

Indicates the maximum number of successive hyphenated lines.

For instance, if `2`, then no more than 2 successive lines may end with a hyphenated word. If `0` then no lines may end with a hyphenated word. (Hyphenation is effectively disabled.)

Negative values are not allowed.
