Same for digraphs in slavic languanges like ch, cz, dz, dź, dż, rz, sz 
in Polish.

I’ve once seen the originally Polish family name Kuczynski in a German 
text hyphenated as Kuc-zynski which is wrong since cz is a single sound 
[ʈ͡ʂ].

However, I don’t think <html lang="de">… Jürgen <span 
lang="pl">Kuczynski</span> …</html> would be appropriate mark-up:
1) Jürgen Kuczynski was German, not Polish. 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%BCrgen_Kuczynski)
2) The family name Kuczynski should not be presented in a different 
voice to screen reader users.

Is there any way to achieve proper automated hyphenation in this case?

Gunnar
