On this question, I have noticed that the next line of the question title begins in the middle of the word, depending on how wind I have my screen width.

This happens on Meta too. I'm seeing this on Safari 12.0.1 on macOS 10.14.1.

I expect that the title will spill over to the second line with whole words, not in the middle of the word. So for instance, I would expect:

Is there a term for the belief that what is popular in society defines what is moral?

Rather than

Is there a term for the belief th at what is popular in society d efines what is moral?

Can this bug be fixed so that titles are more readable? I'd hate for meaning to be misunderstood if line breaks happen in the wrong place.

I thought this was an issue only in the edit mode, but it also appears in the display mode as your example illustrates.

I checked the following long titles and they appeared correct when displayed for reading. However, as Eliran note,d when one resizes the window they can be inaccurately displayed.

I agree that it would be nice to have the titles displayed better.

  • For me they aren't. Did you check if they are still displayed correctly when you resize your window? – Eliran Nov 24 '18 at 20:34

    @Eliran You're right. When I resized the window there was a place where the title did not display correctly even on these two examples. So this bug is a problem more generally than I thought. – Frank Hubeny Nov 24 '18 at 22:00
