2) If hyphenation is enabled shall a word containing a SHY still undergo hyphenation?
That's an interesting question. The problem are languages which use compound words and agglutination. Last time I looked, for the English language words containing shy were not automatically hyphenated, because this wouldn't make sense. German, Hungarian, Turkish etc. are somewhat more delicate. I think it's best to do automatic hyphenation, but remove shy (as well as other Unicode chars like joiners) before passing the word to the hyphenator. The shy position should however dominate the other hyphenation positions, perhaps by giving it a lower penalty. J.Pietschmann
