Special Typography SymbolsEdit

  00A0 non-breaking space - invisible forced space.
- 00AD soft hyphen - is shown where it is inserted in a word if the word is too long for the line and breaks just after the soft hyphen. Otherwise the hyphen is invisible. In several wordprocessors soft hyphen can be entered by holding the control key and at the same time pressing the hyphen key, and is shown as a hyphen with gray background.
  200B zero-width space - provides a non-printing word separator, an invisible line break opportunity
  200C zero-width non-joiner - non-printing character to separate two characters that would otherwise produce a ligature
