Yeah, we need hyphenation badly!
Does the Kindle crash when it won't fit on one line? Or maybe it translates into english to not have to hyphenate.

My suggestion would be to hold your Kindle upside down. Why mess with fonts, if you're just after getting it to be less readable?

They are, and you can keep sticking them together.

English: computer programming handbook selection criteria
German: Computerprogrammierhandbuchauswahlverfahren
Dutch: Computerprogrammeringshandboekselectiecriteria

I'd break up a world like this into a short sentence. While officially possible, it doesn't make your stuff more readable
