Description JW 2006-03-02 05:47:53 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows; U; AIIEEEE!; Win98; Windows 98; en-US; Gecko masquerading as IE; should it matter?; rv:1.8b) Gecko/20050217

Description of problem:
All soft hyphens are totally ignored by Mozilla.
Normally the ­ character is treated as a soft hyphen and can be used to cause long words to be split across lines (in a table, for example).

Other browsers like IE seem to adhere more strictly to the HTML standards.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create some html with soft hyphens
3.Ok, here is a silly example.
<table width="5">
View this with Mozilla and Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Actual Results:  Mozilla will not hyphenate the word.
Microsoft Internet Explorer will hyphenate the word.

Expected Results:  Mozilla should recognise soft hyphens
