So Sorry. I totally missed that your question was about dividing between pages.
The Literary Lesson Manual sect. 2.4a states " EBAE Rule I.5a says that a word 'may' be divided between pages, the Library of Congress does not recomment it."
Also on page 12-4 of Literary Lesson Manual, in the boxed material it states, "... do not divide words between pages."
I cannot find any specific reference to dividing hyphenated compound words between pages.
Since hyphenated compound words are treated as single units in regards to the use of full caps and special typeface, I would assume that a single unit/word would not be divided between pages. That is just my opinion. Sorry I couldn't give you a more concrete answer.
