Exactly the same situation obtains for a hyphenated word : the reader
cannot be sure whether the word is always so hyphenated, or whether it
is hyphenated because the word spans a line boundary. BUT -- a reader
/clicking/ on a URL that spans a line-boundary will, if the code has
been correctly written, always be taken to the correct location.
