A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should soon make its way to your favorite mirror. Thank you, Jim Hefferon ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: outerhbox Author's name: Jonathan Fine Location on CTAN: /macros/generic/misc/outerhbox.sty Summary description: outerhbox.sty - collect horizontal material for contributing to a paragraph License type: gpl Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
Collects horizontal mode material into an \hbox, suitable for later \unhbox'ing into a paragraph. For use with plain, LaTeX, ConTeXt, etc. Provides \outerhbox, which is roughly similar to \hbox, except that material is set in outer horizontal mode. This prevents TeX from optimising away math penalties and the like, that are needed when the material is \unhbox'ed.

## outerhbox – Collect horizontal material for contributing to a paragraph

The package provides the \outerhbox command, which is similar to \hbox, except that material is set in outer horizontal mode. This prevents from optimising away maths penalties and the like, that are needed when the material is \unhbox'ed.
