dhua – German abbreviations using thin space

The package provides commands for those abbreviations of German phrases for which the use of thin space is recommended. Setup commands \newdhua and \newtwopartdhua are provided, as well as commands for single cases (such as \zB for ‘z. B.’, saving the user from typing such as ‘z.\,B.’).

To typeset the documentation, the niceverb package, version 0.44, or later, is required.
