Description

In the about page of WordPress 6.5, text-wrap:balance is applied to the h1/h2/h3/h4 elements.

https://github.com/WordPress/wordpress-develop/blob/8c91078a6ae92560f3025ec34eab9b1169ec2e27/src/wp-admin/css/about.css#L408

This may work beautifully in Latin languages, but it adds unintended new lines, at least in Japanese.

For example, let's take the heading "Add and manage fonts across your site" as an example. In English, it is displayed as follows:

Add and manage
fonts across your site

On the other hand, in Japanese, it is displayed as follows:

サイト全体へのフォ
ントの追加と管理

The words are wrapped in the middle, but if you compare it to English, it is similar to how it would be displayed as shown below.

Add and man
age fonts across your site

At least in Japanese, I would expect no wrapping at all, that is, the text would be wrapped to fit the width of the container.

I would be happy if someone could test what effect text-wrap:balance has on other CJK languages.
