Who knew a Unicode character could be endearing?

Above: a character, perhaps,
but not a Unicode one
A nugget, from the Firefox 8.0 release notes, section "What's New," item "Improved CSS hyphen support for many languages:"

U+00AD (SHY)
An invisible, "soft" hyphen. This character is not rendered visibly; instead, it suggests a place where the browser might choose to break the word if necessary. In HTML, you can use ­ to insert a soft hyphen.

Emph. added.
