jayant Kaushik commented on FOP-2522:

Is there a known workaround for this? This bug causes a hyphen in the pdf, just 
before the line break and preceded by a non-numeric character, to be rendered 
as a line-break character. I face this issue in the <cmdsynopsis> element. When 
I copy the command, the hyphen (as described above) is not copied to the

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2522
>             Project: FOP
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.0
>            Reporter: Björn Kautler
> 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)
