           Summary: Soft-hyphen character looses data under certain
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525.x (Safari 3.1)
          Platform: All
               URL: http://test.kingdesk.com/webkit-shy-error/
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Layout and Rendering
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: jeff at kingdesk.com

When a soft-hyphen (­) is preceded by another soft-hyphen and one
intervening character, the hyphen and intervening character are dropped when
the word is wrapped at lines end.

The source code shows the full word without the dropped letter, so this appears
to be a display issue only - but a very inconvenient one for us who use
hyphenation on our websites.

This has been confirmed on Mac and Windows in Safari and Chrome.
