Still play Wordle? —

The Wordle Hinter provides hints for when you're stumped about what word to test next. Important: The hinter does not solve Wordle. It only provides hints, up to 10 word suggestions for your next play.

The first full sentence under the Wordle header at that page has a link to reveal several places where the game can be played online.

This week's article —

(Quick link) You will find ways to control word breaks and their hyphenation for your web pages. While browsers generally do a good-enough job, they don't know everything.

Enjoy the issue, .

HTML Hyphen and Word-Break Control

Web browsers usually do fine when it comes to hyphenating content at word breaks — until an unusual situation arises.

Word breaks in this article means words that break at the end of a line of text — the beginning of the word is published at the end of the line and the ending of the word is published at the beginning of the next line.

Unusual situations include narrow columns, extra long words, and words that should not break at their hyphen.

There are several simple things you can do that give you more control over what browsers do with your content when it comes to hyphens or lack thereof. Every method mentioned in this article is included in a box with examples near the end of the article.

The following are in addition to the regular keyboard hyphen.

  1. A non-break hyphen that should not allow a word break.

  2. A soft hyphen, a hyphen that appears only when a word breaks right there.

  3. A hyphenless word break.

Without any of the above, the browser hyphenates according to its defaults and user-specified preferences.

The online article talks about each of the above. And it has examples for easier understanding.

Thank you for reading Possibilities.
