[Bug 11456] In Swedish many words should be written together, like "Skumtomte" (Candy foam Santa) and not as "Skum tomte" (Weird/Strange Santa). I would like to be able to write "skum<wbr hypen>tomte" to denote that the word can be broken up to be equal as "skum-<br/

I did not know about &shy; but there is a problem, when it is entered as
"skum&shy;tomte" one can not search for "skumtomte" within a document.

Therefore I think that "skum<wbr shy />tomte" or something like that would be
better, Neverthe less I'll start using &shy; from now on. Even tough browsers
could handle it a bit better (Should probably just be one line or two of code,
just make a copy of searchable text and remove &shy; from it and from search
query, then perform regular search function. That's a one-liner :)

Well,
Thank you Mr. Simon Pieters for informing me about the &shy; entity.

Best Regards,
Frank M. Eriksson
