Comprehensive TeX Archive Network

Direc­tory tex-archive/language/hyph-utf8

This is the central repository for all hyphenation patterns (that we know of).
These patterns are encoded in UTF-8, but can also be used with 8-bit TeX
engines such as pdfTeX with the help of mechanisms provided with the package.
It is meant to be a low-level package and is integrated with all major TeX
distributions (TeX Live, MiKTeX, W32TeX); most TeX users should thus not
concern themselves with this package, unless of course they’re working on the
hyphenation patterns themselves.

If you are an author of hyphenation patterns and want to add or update them,
please contact the maintainers through the mailing list: tex-hyphen@tug.org
You can also visit the home page at http://www.hyphenation.org for more
information and technical details.

hyph-utf8 – Hyphen­ation pat­terns ex­pressed in UTF-8

Modern na­tive UTF-8 en­gines such as XTeX and LuaTeX need hy­phen­ation pat­terns in UTF-8 for­mat, whereas older sys­tems re­quire hy­phen­ation pat­terns in the 8-bit en­cod­ing of the font in use (such en­cod­ings are cod­i­fied in the LaTeX scheme with names like OT1, T2A, TS1, OML, LY1, etc).

The present pack­age of­fers a col­lec­tion of con­ver­sions of ex­ist­ing pat­terns to UTF-8 for­mat, to­gether with con­vert­ers for use with 8-bit fonts in older sys­tems. Since hy­phen­ation pat­terns for Knuthian-style TeX sys­tems are only read at iniTeX time, it is hoped that the UTF-8 pat­terns, with their con­vert­ers, will com­pletely sup­plant the older pat­terns.
