I have a long URL that contains some hyphens, and would like to include it in a Word document. Unfortunately Word sees the hyphens and creates a rather ugly line-breaking scheme.
If I replace the hyphens with nonbreaking hyphens, it looks nice, but now if someone cut+pastes the URL into a browser, it won't work because the difference between regular hyphens and nonbreaking hyphens are significant.
I don't want to rely on a hyperlink, since a printed document may be used later. Also, I can't use tinyurl or another URL-shortening server, since it's an internal URL behind our company firewall.
Is there a way adjust paragraph style to keep Word from breaking lines at regular hyphens, so that I don't have to mess with the URL? Or do I just lose here?
