README file of sphyphb.tex -- Spanish Plain TeX Hyphenation Tables V 2.04 <2010/02/01> Includes EC encoded accented letters. Suggested location of sphyphb.tex: .../texmf/tex/generic/hyphen/ Rodrigo Medina (email@example.com) Licence: LPPL Comments and bug reports are welcomed at firstname.lastname@example.org As far as I know these patterns do not produce wrong hyphen points in Spanish words, but I would appreciate if someone can extensively test them. Notes: 1- This package implements the RAE1999 rules. End-of-line word splitting is different from syllabic splitting. The patterns are based on phonetic rules that depend on the word structure. The optional semantic rules (compound words, prefixes) and style considerations (to avoid bad words) are disregarded. 2- Groups of vowels, including imbeded "h", are not split. 3- A hyphen is never put in front of an "h" except for the patterns "hue" "hua","huo", "hui" and "hie". 4- Isolated letters at the beginning or at the end of the word are avoided. 5- Many spaniards say "at-le-ta", but most spanish-americans say "a-tle-ta". Both hyphenations are accepted. We take the second one. 6- Some exceptions for the prefix "sub" are included. 7- The standard spanish patterns require lefthyphenmin and righthyphenmin equal or bigger than 2. Instead these patterns work with lefthyphenmin=1 and righthyphenmin=1, but the result is the same than setting both parameters equal to 2. 8- The package works also with encodings ISO8859-1 and ISO8859-15. 9- In order to activate the EC letters the following commands should appear before the text. \catcode`\^^e1=11 \lccode`\^^e1=`\^^e1 % 'a \catcode`\^^e9=11 \lccode`\^^e9=`\^^e9 % 'e \catcode`\^^ed=11 \lccode`\^^ed=`\^^ed % 'i \catcode`\^^f1=11 \lccode`\^^f1=`\^^f1 % ~n \catcode`\^^f3=11 \lccode`\^^f3=`\^^f3 % 'o \catcode`\^^fa=11 \lccode`\^^fa=`\^^fa % 'u \catcode`\^^fc=11 \lccode`\^^fc=`\^^fc % "u \catcode`\^^c1=11 \lccode`\^^c1=`\^^e1 % 'A \catcode`\^^c9=11 \lccode`\^^c9=`\^^e9 % 'E \catcode`\^^cd=11 \lccode`\^^cd=`\^^ed % 'I \catcode`\^^d1=11 \lccode`\^^d1=`\^^f1 % ~N \catcode`\^^d3=11 \lccode`\^^d3=`\^^f3 % 'O \catcode`\^^da=11 \lccode`\^^da=`\^^fa % 'U \catcode`\^^dc=11 \lccode`\^^dc=`\^^fc % "U

sphyphb – Experimental Spanish hyphenation patterns
These hyphenation patterns for Spanish, follow RAE 1999. Only phonetic rules are used, but it is believed that it gives the right hyphenation of all Spanish words. Nevertheless, extensive testing is still needed.
