    Dang. I should have taken the screen shot yesterday.

    Now neither U+2010 nor U+2011 generates a break. Only hyphen-minus and SHY do. The same test yesterday produced different results for me. It may have something to do with how I entered the code points: I use the Chinese Unicode IME when I want to poke in a specific code point. But I did that this morning [and setting document language to Chinese doesn't seem to change the hyphenation handling].

    Same computer using Word 2007. See

    Internationalization is not a feature.
    It is an architecture.
