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.

3.Ok, here is a silly example.
View this with Mozilla and Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Actual Results: Mozilla will not hyphenate the word.

Expected Results: Mozilla should recognise soft hyphens
