I just assumed it was the correct break from the rules I was taught  
in primary school (that word break wherever a syllabus begins, and  
that a syllabus always begins with a consonant following a vowel  
within a word -- except when there are several consecutive  
consonants, in which case things get trickier).

There may be more elaborated rules, preventing in particular a break  
within "sable", but I don't know them. The TeXbook and other TeX  
literature in English mention dictionaries where hyphenation points  
are mentioned for each word, but I've never seen such a dictionary in  
French. Maybe the original (i.e. full-length) Robert dictionary or  
the Littré, I've never looked at them carefully.
