The hyphenation class should be placed on text that might be served in narrow width containers and is not truncated.
This will allow the text to break, or hyphenate, depending on the browser's capabilities. Chrome currently doesn't show the hyphenation, but the bug is currently marked fixed, so it should soon.
Overview of CSS Classes
- The CSS class being referred to.
- A description of what the class does.
- Whether the class name is dev-ready (meaning it's fully vetted and tested and safe to use) or prototype (which means it's not fully vetted yet).
- The selector that the class name is allowed to be used on.
- The base level pattern for a component. A variant can be extended to create another variant of that component, for example, a stateful button is a derivative of the base button.
- A single class that can be added to an HTML element of a component to modify its output. Typically these will be colors, sizing and positioning.
