Soft-hyphens, show hyphens

Extend the window to show all text on one line. Then steadily reduce the width of the orange box by either using the buttons (if JavaScript is available) or moving the window side. Test passes if, while steadily narrowing the window width, the text "funktionen" wraps and leaves a hyphen at the end of the first line; then "verarbeitungsfunktionen" appears on the second line, with a hyphen at the end of the first; then "verarbeitungs" appears on the second line and "funktionen" on the third, and there are hyphens at the end of the first and second lines. Hyphens should not be visible unless at the end of a line where the word "Eingabeverarbeitungsfunktionen" is broken. Wrapping should not occur anywhere else

Test: Eingabe­verarbeitungs­funktionen

Assertion: The browser will display a hyphen-like glyph at the end of a line in the middle of a broken word containing a soft hyphen, but only at the end of the line.


These tests examine the default behavior of characters against the expectations in the Unicode Standard Annex, version 5.1.0. The two-letter abbreviations are conventions for property names in the Unicode Standard. Non-tailorable characters have normative behavior in the Unicode Standard that applies in all normal circumstances.

For more information about expected line break behavior and line break classes, see Unicode Standard Annex #14 Line Breaking Properties.
