HTML / HTML+ -- need for hyphenation

German language uses a lot of composita e.g. the manager of a
file system may be called "Dateisystemmanager"; if this is a
program it may be named "Dateisystemmanagerprogram" ...

In this situation German www-documents may look very ugly unless
a "still hyphen" would be introduced into HTML and it's browsers.

Another possibility could be to add an automatic hyphenation which
is available e.g from TeX.
