¦----------------------------------------------¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ THE POLYGLOSSIA PACKAGE v1.42.4 ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦ Modern multilingual typesetting ¦ ¦ with XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦----------------------------------------------¦ This package provides an alternative to Babel for users of XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX (with a few languages incompletely supported for the latter). This version includes support for 76 different languages. Polyglossia makes it possible to automate the following tasks: * Loading the appropriate hyphenation patterns. * Setting the script and language tags of the current font (if possible and available), using the package fontspec. * Switching to a font assigned by the user to a particular script or language. * Adjusting some typographical conventions in function of the current language (such as afterindent, frenchindent, spaces before or after punctuation marks, etc.). * Redefining the document strings (like “chapter”, “figure”, “bibliography”). * Adapting the formatting of dates (for non-gregorian calendars via external packages bundled with polyglossia: currently the Hebrew, Islamic and Farsi calendars are supported). * For languages that have their own numeration system, modifying the formatting of numbers appropriately. * Ensuring the proper directionality if the document contains languages written from right to left (via the package bidi, available separately).

polyglossia – An alternative to babel for XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX
This is the first release that supports use with LuaLaTeX; it should be considered “transitional” in that rôle.
