This is the cen­tral repos­i­tory for all hy­phen­ation pat­terns (that we know of). Th­ese pat­terns are en­coded in UTF-8, but can also be used with 8-bit TeX en­gines such as pdfTeX with the help of mech­a­nisms pro­vided with the pack­age. It is meant to be a low-level pack­age and is in­te­grated with all ma­jor TeX dis­tri­bu­tions (TeX Live, MiKTeX, W32TeX); most TeX users should thus not con­cern them­selves with this pack­age, un­less of course they’re work­ing on the hy­phen­ation pat­terns them­selves.

If you are an au­thor of hy­phen­ation pat­terns and want to add or up­date them, please con­tact the main­tain­ers through the mail­ing list: tex-hy­phen@tug.org You can also visit the TeX hy­phen­ation page for more in­for­ma­tion and tech­ni­cal de­tails.

hyph-utf8 – Hyphen­ation pat­terns ex­pressed in UTF-8

Modern na­tive UTF-8 en­gines such as XTeX and LuaTeX need hy­phen­ation pat­terns in UTF-8 for­mat, whereas older sys­tems re­quire hy­phen­ation pat­terns in the 8-bit en­cod­ing of the font in use (such en­cod­ings are cod­i­fied in the LaTeX scheme with names like OT1, T2A, TS1, OML, LY1, etc).

The present pack­age of­fers a col­lec­tion of con­ver­sions of ex­ist­ing pat­terns to UTF-8 for­mat, to­gether with con­vert­ers for use with 8-bit fonts in older sys­tems. Since hy­phen­ation pat­terns for Knuthian-style TeX sys­tems are only read at iniTeX time, it is hoped that the UTF-8 pat­terns, with their con­vert­ers, will com­pletely sup­plant the older pat­terns.
