Date: July 14, 2008 5:16:40 PM CEST
This pack­age has been up­dated at tug.ctan.org. Thank you, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ....................................................................... The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: Hyphen­ation Pat­terns in UTF-8 en­cod­ing Author's name: Mo­jca Miklavec Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: / Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Hyphen­ation pat­terns have been con­verted into UTF-8 and should serve as a re­place­ment for the old pat­terns with­out any change in func­tion­al­ity. The pat­terns should be con­sid­ered up­stream re­place­ment that will be used in TeX Live and other dis­tru­bu­tions in­stead of load­ing the old files. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
* ad­di­tional pat­terns with hy­phen for Rus­sian and Ukrainian added (UTF-8 pat­terns only) * source for doc­u­men­ta­tion for Bul­gar­ian added (and im­proved from pre­vi­ous ver­sion)

hyph-utf8 – Hyphen­ation pat­terns ex­pressed in UTF-8

Modern na­tive UTF-8 en­gines such as and Lua 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 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 sys­tems are only read at ini time, it is hoped that the UTF-8 pat­terns, with their con­vert­ers, will com­pletely sup­plant the older pat­terns.
