I don’t know whether it makes sense to add discretionary hyphens to
texts, ewhen a browser can hyphenate it

This would make also searching harder.

And my experience with ePub readers (Adobe Reader Mobile 9) is that they
are interpreted as zero-width spaces

BTW, ARM 9 doesn’t handle zero-width spaces right either. It interprets
them as standard spaces.

pandoc may be the way.

I say “may be” instead of “is” because pandoc ignores some attributes
when converting from XHTML

Just in case it helps,
