Description:
6.1 Hyphenation Control: the hyphens property
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-text-3/#hyphens-property


"When shaping scripts such as Arabic are allowed to break within words due to hyphenation, the characters must still be shaped as if the word were not broken."


I have seen a mail thread about hyphenation of Latin text within Arabic, but I've heard a from a few experts that hyphenation is not actually used for Arabic-script text. Do we have some evidence that it is used? Just curious.
