New === - ini files with the field dig­its.na­tive de­fine \<lan­guage>dig­its and \<lan­guage>coun­ters. \ara­bic can be re­de­fined to use na­tive dig­its. - Fix - map­font in bidi=ba­sic didn't take into ac­count com­bin­ing marks (eg, Ara­bic vow­els). - Fix - A bug in­tro­duced in 3.19, which some­times re­versed text in \hbox'es. - Fix for lu­a­tex 1.07 - An in­ter­nal change in lu­a­tex broke bidi at 'au­to­matic' hy­phens. - Fix for lat­est la­tex - ba­bel.ins raised an er­ror.

ba­bel – Mul­tilin­gual sup­port for Plain or

This pack­age man­ages cul­tur­ally-de­ter­mined ty­po­graph­i­cal (and other) rules for a wide range of lan­guages. A doc­u­ment may se­lect a sin­gle lan­guage to be sup­ported, or it may se­lect sev­eral, in which case the doc­u­ment may switch from one lan­guage to an­other in a va­ri­ety of ways.

Ba­bel uses con­tributed con­fig­u­ra­tion files that pro­vide the de­tail of what has to be done for each lan­guage. In­cluded is also a set of ini files for about 200 lan­guages.

Many lan­guage styles work with pdf, as well as with XeLaTeX and Lua, out of the box. A few even work with plain for­mats.
