Subject: Re: Soft line breaks in XSL:FO output

I tried inserting &#200b at the points where I wanted the URLs to be
broken, but that didn't give me the desired results.  I got

 http://                   some-

when the result I was hoping for, was:


(I didn't spot the bit about turning hyphenation off, in your message.
Perhaps that would have fixed it?)

I ended up with inserting <fo:block/>.  I put in the PI
<?fo-table-cell-break?> where I wanted the break, and put the
following template into my local customization style sheet for
generating XSL:FO:

  <xsl:template match="processing-instruction('fo-table-cell-break')">
