Specifications

Not part of any specification.

Remarks

The -ms-hyphenate-limit-zone property enables you to control the amount of trailing whitespace permitted during hyphenation. The hyphenation zone is always at the logical right side of the padding box.

A word is considered for hyphenation only if it begins at or outside of the logical left limit of the hyphenation zone.
