Description mbw8 1999-08-17 00:34:58 UTC
Running w/ RH6.0+updates
Latex hyphenation is broken badly; sometimes it will
hyphenate at the very last letter of a word (bad) or at the
very first letter (bad). This shouldn't happen... right?

Here is some offending test code that hyphenates at S-napple
when I run it:


Foo bar fubar singlonk wingnut froobles asinine seventeen
futzing laughter Snapple Ameritech Every handlebar lorum
ipsum motorcycle feedback sharks with laser beams.

I did a search on dejanews and this kind of problem arises
when \lefthyphenmin and \righthyphenmin are not set
properly. It looks like you guys grabbed a broken snapshot
of tetex from CTAN:

A workaround is to just add these lines,


But that's a kludge.

Upgrade to tetes-1.0.6-2 from Raw Hide.
