automatic hyphenation

<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.
