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.
