    Automatic hyphenation in EPUB

    SimonLinden Level 1

      Hello,

      I'm working on an EPUB version of a book of which I've previously made a print edition. I'm gradually getting a hang of it, but I can't figure out how to add automatic hyphenation – or even allow for hyphenation at all.

      The automatically created CSS includes these lines:

      body {
       -epub-hyphens:auto;
       -webkit-hyphens:auto;
      }
      

      and for some of the headlines which should not be hyphenated:

       -epub-hyphens:none;
      

       

      I currently only have the equipment to test this on an iPad (iBooks), plus computer software like Calibre and Adobe Digital Editions. Both iBooks and Calibre allow the user to turn on hyphenation themselves, but there's no hyphenation in my book even when I do that.

       

      Any ideas how to solve this?
