    Word treats SHY (SOFT HYPHEN) as an always visible character. At least Word
    2007 treats it as allowing a line break after it, though.

    Interestingly, if you have two HYPHEN-MINUS characters in succession (--),
    Word only breaks after the latter of them. This is fine, considering e.g.
    special notations involving such a combination, as well as some French
