Nook lines breaking mid-word
I've been having an annoying phenomena with recent epubs (NON B&N epubs, copy-pasted via windows into the Nook) where the text is broken into new lines at MID-word. The words are broken with a hyphen in the middle instead of the Nook leaving some empty space and breaking at the nearest space.
I've tried playing with style (text-align for instance) but to no effect. I'm really starting to get frustrated by the Nook's different html and style issues. On some epubs it doesn't happen, and it seems to be irregardless of stylesheets.
Anyone else having this problem? Thanks

Yes! I had a hyphenation problem some time ago! All of a sudden (or rather, I think it was after firmware update) the Nook started hyphenating like I don't know what! It was driving me nuts especially when reading Swedish, because we have other hyphenation rules than the English language, and of course the Nook doesn't follow Swedish rules!
I don't remember how I got it sorted though... So I'm of no help, but at least you know you're not alone!

According to an earlier thread about excessive hyphenation on the COLOR Nook, you could do this in the epub file to help the problem:
If for your epubs you don't want the hyphenation engine (and the better typography, etc...), you can force RMSDK 9.2 to use the 'old' 9.1 text engine by adding adding the css attribute 'adobe-text-layout: optimizeSpeed;' to a body selector ie
... other attributes ...
I don't know if this really helps and I don't know which thread it is in (I just saved the part I wanted), but you might give it a try.

Also, would this remove ALL hyphens, even the ones that should be in the text where they need to be?
