I don’t know whether it makes sense to add discretionary hyphens to
texts, ewhen a browser can hyphenate it
(http://css-tricks.com/almanac/properties/h/hyphenate/).

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
(http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28139).

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
(http://pandoc.org/try/?text=%3Cp%3EThis+is+sample+with+a+foreign+word%3A+%3Cem+lang%3D%22de%22%3EFremdsprache%3C%2Fem%3E.%3C%2Fp%3E&from=html&to=markdown).

Just in case it helps,


Pablo
