I thought ­ should be ignored unless there beginns a new line. (therefore the name "soft hyphen"). The bug might be, that there is no hyphen on hyphenation; but there shouldn't be one if there is none. Suggest: a) Mark as resolved, invalid b) Mark as duplicate of bug 31304 (­ doesn't render), which is HTML (You need to check first, whether this applys, I don't exactly know XML and linebreaking in Mozilla) c) Change the bug to a XML equivalent of (b) The bug uses:   = BO-BREAK SPACE (00A0) ­ = SOFT HYPHEN (00AD) = 173 ­ = SOFT HYPHEN (00AD) = 173
I agree with Tobias, ­ should only be displayed when preceding a line-break. See bug 9101. Resolving as INVALID.
