I really like the Korean text, and I'd love to see it go live.

Regarding the incorrect splitting of names at a hyphen, can this be dealt
with by using the Unicode non-breaking hyphen?

Mappers would have to type the non-breaking hyphen instead of a regular
hyphen, but the renderers should be able to do the right thing if a
non-breaking hyphen is used.  Otherwise someone has to write a whole bunch
of complicated heuristics that would be horrible to maintain.

Unless hyphens in place names should always be treated as non-breaking.

Best wishes,
