    I have tried to change hyphens.xml so that XEP will use (a modified version
    of) nehyph.tex for dutch language files, but I'm running into trouble:

    First of all, I've added the following:

    <hyphen language="nl" table="nehyph.tex"/>

    to the hyphens.xml file. This does not work: not a single word is

    To test, I changed the page-sequence language att. in FO to "en". This
    resulted in hyphenation according to english rules. So I know the concept of
    hyphenation is at least working :)

    To test some more, I changed the page-sequence language attribute back to
    "nl" and changed the hyphens.xml file so that my original added line said:

    <hyphen language="nl" table="ukhyphen.tex"/>

    Result: no more hyphenation.

    Then I changed the page-sequence language attribute back to "en" and made
    the hyphens.xml file say:

    <hyphen language="en" table="nehyph.tex"/>

    ... which, to my amazement, gave me back the english hyphenation. So what is
    going on here? Is english hyphenation hard-coded to be associated with the
    "en" language? What do I have to do to make XEP actually use dutch
    hyphenation rules?
