                README for the `dhua' package
           (German Abbreviations Using Thin Space)
                  (C) Uwe Lueck 2011/09/16

`dhua.sty' provides commands for German phrase abbreviations 
such as `d. h.' that are recommended to use a thin space -
set-up commands `\newdhua' and `\newtwopartdhua' as well as 
commands for single cases (e.g., `\zB' for `z. B.', to save you 
from typing `z.\,B.').  Package options support generating PDF 
and HTML from the same source and automatical use of `\xspace'.

  Das Paket `dhua' bietet Befehle fuer mehrgliedrige Abkuer-
  zungen, fuer die schmale Leerzeichen (Festabstaende) empfoh-
  len werden (Duden, Wikipedia). In die englische Paketdokumen- 
  tation sind deutsche Hinweise eingestreut.

KEYWORDs: German typography;

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.
