Is it possible to get text in a box to hyphenate, as I have been looking for someway to reduce the line spaces on my Greek text (they use big words)?

The web becomes a tangled mess when Microsoft gets involved!

Hyphenation on text

Unfortunately CSS isn't as refined for typography as DTP packages (Quark, InDesign, etc.) Within these packages, you can specify how many characters into a word before it hyphenates at the end of the line. Not in CSS.

The next sentence is true. The previous sentence is false. Discuss...
