Hi Willi,

I must admit that after the reform some 20 years ago, I'm no longer 
certain about German rules. But I think that in fact, according to the 
new rules, ß is no longer hyphenated the way you suggest. Duden § 164.3: 
"Ein einzelner Konsonantenbuchstabe im Wortinneren kommt in der Regel 
auf die neue Zeile; von mehreren Konsonantbuchstaben trennt man nur den 
letzten ab.
Zum Beispiel
     Grü-ße, hei-ßen

So Eiwei-ßes may in fact be correct... But I assume that Arthur has some 
authoritative answer to this question.
