Does anyone know of any online dictionary that also shows where words can be hyphenated?

Many thanks

The online Merriam-Webster dictionary shows End-of-Line division:

The centered dots within entry words indicate division points at which a hyphen may be put at the end of a line of print or writing. Thus the noun pos·si·bil·i·ty may be ended on one line with:

pos-
possi-
possibil-
possibili-

and continued on the next with:

sibility
bility
ity
ty

Hope that helps. ;-)
