CTAN submission – soul.sty
Date: May 29, 2002 5:16:21 PM CEST
----- Forwarded message from Melchior FRANZ -----
I've just uploaded version 2.3 of `soul.sty' as archive
>--- soul.tar.gz ---<
>--- ftp://ftp.dante.de/incoming/ ---<
Please replace the contents of
>--- /macros/latex/contrib/supported/soul/ ---<
by the new files. The package is again licenced under the terms of the
>--- LPPL ---<
The soul package provides hyphenatable letterspacing, underlining,
overstriking, and highlighting.
- fixes a nasty hack, that kept soul from playing nice with
ccfonts.sty (beton.sty), cmbright.sty and possibly other
packages. This is now solved cleanly.
(Under normal circumstances this would have become version 2.2.1
or something, but soul is IMHO feature complete and has already
stabilized after the rewrite. So I consider this fix worth getting
released soon and with its own minor release number. Imagine, this
was the very last bug and I had to stick to an odd version number
like "2.2.1a" forever. Shudder ...)
- fixes some small bugs in the documentation, as always
- GO FORTH now and steal sheep! :-]

Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested replacing the old
version in CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/soul/
for the CTAN team
soul – Hyphenation for letterspacing, underlining, and more
The package provides hyphenable spacing out (letterspacing), underlining,
striking out, etc., using the TeX 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.
