What version of NetSurf? In Page -> Info, what does Encoding say?
NetSurf doesn't support soft hyphens but it should be displaying
regular hyphens. What you're seeing seems to show that it isn't interpreting
that page as UTF-8 correctly.
Page -> Info does say "Encoding: UTF-8 (from <meta>)", and, yes, r6772
displays them as regular hyphens (my original question arose from an
earlier release). So I suppose it comes down to asking whether there
are plans for NetSurf to handle soft hyphens like other browsers.
Thanks for the info.
