It does not work with decomposed characters though: no break occurs 
after an accented vowel. Maybe it is a matter of precedence. There are 
for instance these rules:
	(1) 1<s>
	(2) 2<acute>1
<a><acute><s> should be broken as <a><acute>-<s> but it is not. Perhaps 
rule (1) should be 3<s> or rule (2) 2<acute>3. I am a little at a loss 

Best wishes,
