FIX. RadGridView - does not render soft hyphen ('\u00AD') in its cells even thought the cell's text is correct
To reproduce:

public Form1()

    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("word \u00AD word");
    this.radGridView1.Rows.Add("word - word");

Workaround: replace "\u00AD" with "-"

private void radGridView1_CellFormatting(object sender, Telerik.WinControls.UI.CellFormattingEventArgs e)
    e.CellElement.Text = e.CellElement.Text.Replace("\u00AD", "-");

The issue is caused by the GDI+ drawing API. More info can be found here:
To avoid the issue, you can do several things:
1. Apply the hotfix from Microsoft
2. Replace the soft hyphen (U+00AD) with a minus hyphen (U+002D). 
3. Force RadGridView to use GDI for painting by setting the UseCompatibleTextRendering property to false.
