	I haven't fully checked this, but is that
	not the purpose of:

<!ENTITY zwnj CDATA "&#8204;" -- zero width non-joiner,
	U+200C NEW RFC 2070 -->


	Of course, an element would have the advantage
	that it would be completely ignored on older
	browsers.

	There is also:

<!ENTITY shy CDATA "&#173;" -- soft hyphen = discretionary hyphen,
	U+00AD ISOnum -->
