Issue 924069: Implement the hyphenate-limit-chars property

Reported by, Jan 22

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:66.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/66.0

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Use CSS Hyphenation for a sentence
2. Find out that it is also uses Hyphenation for very short words
3. Try to find a solution and fail to do so

What is the expected behavior?
The hyphenate-limit-chars property should be supported in Chromium, so developers can decide how many characters a word should have before hyphens are used and how many characters before/after the break should be the minimum.

What went wrong?
The hyphenate-limit-chars property is currently not supported in Chromium. It should work as the -ms-hyphenate-limit-chars property in IE/Edge:

Did this work before? No 

Does this work in other browsers? N/A

We're trying very hard to to implement further prefixed properties. An unprefixed version of this property has been proposed for CSS Text Level 4 which is under discussion.
