Beware that the glyph must exist in the font, you cannot just use an arbitrary
unoccupied glyph position in the font. If the position does not exist, there will be
no hyphenation at all in your document. For example, the command


(asking for the glyph at position -1, which does not exit)

is a very good way for stopping hyphenation.

So you must find a font that has an invisible zero-width glyph, or open the font
and add that glyph.

of failed communication between authors and readers,
exacerbated by the illusion that communication has successfully occurred.     (John E. Joseph)
