MOBI for Kindle and hyphenation tags

Just an idea: Isn't there any tag I can insert into words on places where they can be divided? I could prepare text source this way then:

Hy÷phen÷a÷tion

If I can tell Mobi file where the hyphen can be in the words during the pre-processing phase of conversion and Kindle understand it, the text will be much better to read.

the Kindle doesn't currently support hyphenation.

The tag you are looking for is a soft hypen (wiki: Hyphens in computing). However, these are often not supported well by reading apps and are likely not supported at all on the Kindle.
