Package: xevlna   Version 1.1                                   25 March 2017

The purpose of the package is to insert nonbreakable spaces (in Czech vlna or
vlnka) after nonsyllabic prepositions and single letter conjuctions directly
while TeXing the document. The macros recognise math and verbatim by TeX
means. Inserting nonbreakable spaces by a preprocessor may never be fully
reliable because user defined macros and environments cannot be recognised.
It can be used by both XeLaTeX and plain XeTeX.


1. put xevlna.sty to the directory where both xetex and xelatex expect
   included files, preferably texmf-dist/tex/xelatex/xevlna/

2. put xevlna.pdf to a directory where texdoc looks for documentation,
   preferably texmf-dist/doc/xevlna


Version 1.1 reflects the increased number of character classes and is backward
compatible with the previous versions of XeTeX.

xevlna – Insert non-break­able spaces us­ing

The pack­age will di­rectly in­sert non­break­able spaces (in Czech, vlna or vlnka), af­ter non­syl­labic prepo­si­tions and sin­gle let­ter con­juc­tions, while the doc­u­ment is be­ing type­set. (The macros recog­nised maths and ver­ba­tim by means.)

(Insert­ing non­break­able spaces by a pre­pro­ces­sor will prob­a­bly never be fully re­li­able, be­cause user de­fined macros and en­vi­ron­ments can­not re­li­ably be recog­nised.)

The pack­age works both with (Plain) and with XeLaTeX.
