non breaking dash

  1. Hello,

    I want to prevent that a word like "Company-Name" is broken at the end
    of the line at the "-".
    With spaces, I would use "nbsp", but how to do this with a dash?

    Try ‑


    Although that may have some restrictions based on what encoding you're
    using - can anyone else advise?

  5. That's non-breaking hyphen. It's probably what the OP really _meant_,
    though. But it doesn't really work, due to browser limitations.

    The practical approach is to use the nonstandard <nobr> markup around the
    string that should not be broken across lines, as in
    For more info, see
    The encoding has nothing to do with that. The meaning of ‑ is
    completely independent on the encoding of the page.

    Thanks for pointing that out, that's more useful than a list of search
