> If you have a verbatim block like {{<programlisting>}} in DocBook, the DocBook XSL stylesheets insert many soft hypens (http://decodeunicode.org/u+00AD) into the content to show where the FO-processor may insert linebreaks. By default after spaces and non-breakable spaces, but configurable also after arbitrary other characters.
> Unfortunately it seems FOP does not handle the soft hyphens correctly, depending on the character that follows it. Soft Hyphens in front of some characters are transformed to hyphen-minus, no matter what hyphenation-characters is configured and even if the occurence is within a line and not at line break.
> I've observed this behaviour with soft hyphens in front of apostrophe (http://decodeunicode.org/u+0027), quotation mark (http://decodeunicode.org/u+0022), hyphen-minus (http://decodeunicode.org/u+002D) and full stop (http://decodeunicode.org/u+002E)
