What I want to know is why on the PW is the word red- (with the dash) not on the 4th line?
Multi-hyphenated words are really annoying. Other than German where they can string together a hundred letters without hyphens to create a compound word, which is even more annoying, such words are a nightmare to break/display in a book, whether digital or print. On a small screen I prefer breaking a multi-hyphenated word across two lines rather than pushing the whole annoying multi-hyphenated word onto the next line thereby truly breaking the visual flow. But lets be honest, how many occurences of these totally annoying multi-hyphenated words do we see in the average book? Little to none, thankfully. Everyone will have their own preference to line breaks dealing with them, so this is really a non-issue just like line spacing.
