Implement white-space:break-spaces value

Project Member Reported by, Sep 21 2017

Issue description

The CSS Text 3 spec defines the a new value 'break-spaces' for the 'white-space' property

Value: normal | pre | nowrap | pre-wrap | break-spaces | pre-line 

Chrome 62.0.3198.0  parses the 'break-space' value as invalid.

Summary: overflow-wrap doesn't accept the 'break-spaces' value (was: overflow-wrap doesn't accept 'break-spaces' value)

The 'break-spaces' value can be used in combination with 'break-word'. In this case, we will allow breaking the line BEFORE the first white-space character after a word (due to the 'break-word' rule). 

I think this case was already discussed here:

It seems that Chrome doesn't respect the rule of looking for previous soft-braking opportunities before applying the 'break-word' ( bug #854624 ), so in order to correctly implement 'break-spaces' we need to fix that bug first.
