[latexrefman] ‘Hef\-\linebreak feron’

Sorry, to dwell on it, but as far as I can understand \linebreak only
increase the likelyhood to have a line break at that point, it does
not force the linebread as \newline would do. This is what (info
"(latex2e) \linebreak & \nolinebreak") says in these terms: «
Encourage or discourage a line break ».
Therefore, having « - » instead of « \- » means that when the line
break does not occur then you have Hef-feron in the same line, which
is not what is desired.
Am I wrong ?

> Please do not do that. The sentence is correct as it stands, since it is about insisting on a split, so \- is nto the right thing, as described inthe first sentence.
