soul – Hyphenation for letterspacing, underlining, and more

The package provides hyphenable spacing out (letterspacing), underlining, striking out, etc., using the hyphenation algorithm to find the proper hyphens automatically. It also provides a mechanism that can be used to implement similar tasks, that have to treat text syllable by syllable. This is shown in two examples.

This version is a merge of the original soul package from Melchior Franz and the soulutf8 package from Heiko Oberdiek and supports also UTF8.
