A soft break is a break at the end of a line or a page that occurs when the program word-wraps or advances pages automatically. A hard break (anywhere in a line or a page) is forced by the program user, who uses a keystroke to force the break at a specific point -- the keystroke embeds a hard-break code. The location of a soft break adjusts automatically with a change in the margins or the line-lengths or the number of lines. The hard break remains in its original location unless the operator deliberately removes it or relocates it.

Hardness is the question of how difficult it is to make an impression on a substance. Brittleness is the question of how easy it is to break.
