As mentioned in another message, a normal ("hard") hyphen tends to allow a
line break after it, so the break will probably appear in a wrong
However, you could use SOFT HYPHEN followed by NON-BREAKING HYPHEN. This
seems to work, in a sense, in some programs, but there's a presentational
problem. The glyph for NON-BREAKING HYPHEN often differs from the glyph
for SOFT HYPHEN when visible. The difference is rather noticeable. In
Times New Roman for example, NON-BREAKING HYPHEN is considerably longer,
almost like an en dash.
