soul – Hyphenation for letterspacing, underlining, and more

Provides hyphenatable spacing out (letterspacing), underlining, striking out, etc., using the hyphenation algorithm to find the proper hyphens automatically. The package also provides a mechanism that can be used to implement similar tasks, that have to treat text syllable by syllable. This is shown in two examples.

The package itself does not support UTF-8 input in ordinary (PDF); some UTF-8 support is offered by package soulutf8
