Misplaced hyphens

I just started using Publisher 2007 and am having trouble with hyphenated
terms such as low-fare, Spanish-language, self-service, etc. When the first
word appears at the end of a line, the hyphen ends up at the beginning of the
next line. This didn't happen in the 2003 version. Does anyone know how to
make the hyphens stay on the same line as the first word in the hyphenated
term?

Thanks ...

I don't think you can control this, a lot depends how much space is needed to
complete the hyphenated words. If you come to the end of a line and only self-
fits, service will have to be on the next line. Do a soft return (shift+enter).
You could adjust the character spacing.

This occurred in 2003 too.

Thanks, but the problem is not that the second word goes onto the next line;
it's that the hyphen goes with it. (In the case of self-service, self is on
one line and -service is on the next.) The hyphen should be at the end of the
first line, not the beginning of the next.
