Computing (FOLDOC) dictionary
automatic hyphenation
Jump to user comments
text A feature of some word processors which can insert
hyphens into words which would otherwise extend beyond the
right hand margin of the page.
More advanced word processors may have options to control the
position of the hyphen, to restrict certain words from being
hyphenated, and to allow custom dictionaries of hyphenation
points to be built up.
