I did go to a site that was a dictionary of sorts for Pali. I noted that he used hyphens on some of the larger words. Whether this is typical, it might be an acceptable way to display, assuming the device will break on hyphens. I frankly don't know how the various devices handle them.

Wow. Thanks for taking the time to investigate that. It's true hyphens are used by some people, but I really want to avoid modifying the original text at all. I realize this is a big limitation I am setting.

Thanks all. I think I will just hope that in the future ADE finds a new way to work with this.

What solution are you looking for? The word either has to run off the end of the page or else be broken; there is no other alternative, is there?

Third option: render it with a reduced font size so it fits in the page (I hope no serious ebook reader does this ever).

I think he wants the word to be broken, but without having to modify the HTML code (just the CSS).
