Description

Hyphenation which is enabled by many official themes is doing more harm than good. For some languages the hyphenation algorithm is outdated (older versions of spelling) or plain incorrect. Enabling and disabling hyphenation should be a setting in wp-admin/options-reading.php which is set by default to none. In this way users will get a properly working website from the moment they install WordPress. Can this feature please get implemented?

Hi @pander, thanks for the ticket. Can you provide some specific examples where hyphenation is broken that could be used as test cases? I'm not sure that we should have an option for such a detail in WordPress core, but more details would be useful.

@jeremyfelt, this is an issue for the CSS engine. We will be making a bug report there and already work is being done on providing software for the new algorithm.

This is best handled by the specific theme, including adding a Customizer option or Reading setting
