I apologize if a solution for this has been posted...

 

I am having trouble keeping certain pieces of text constrained to one line.  They are invariably pieces of text containing symbols.

 

For instance, let's say

 

S/N

 

shows up as the last word on a line.  In some cases, it splits so that it looks like this in the document:

 

S/

N

 

(i.e., the N goes to the next line).  This actually happens for several words with symbols in them.  For instance:

 

S?N

 

becomes

 

S?

N

 

I have seen this with: ! $ % + , but not many of the other "symbols".

 

So in fact, these particular ones are behaving like hyphens!

 

I am not sure why anyone would want such splits to occur - anyhow to the question:

 

Is there a way to keep S/N on the same line without resorting to margin changes or other such things?

 

Thanks,

R.
