Is there also a case for non-breaking hyphens? For example
   's-Hertogenbosch (a place in the Netherlands)

is hyphenated as

   's-
   Hertogenbosch

 which is incorrect. In Dutch you are not allowed to hyphenate less than
two letters. Aparently the apostrophe is calculated as one too. It
should remain one word or hyphenate, when really needed, to

   's-Hertogen-
   bosch
