This is a tricky issue that has lots of different rules. A Google on "hyphenation" turns up lots of conflicting advice! You might find this page helpful:

- it suggests #2 is better - though of course in fully-justified text, it might cause too much spacing to open up. In this case, I would personally edit the copy to improve the appearance. People often forget that one of the skills of the typographer is to change the words if necessary to stop the physical appearance of the text detracting from the meaning!
