    I used XEP for longer documents containg a lot of free-flow text in a
    last months. I found a lot of words with bad hyphenation. I was very
    surprised as I use same hyphenation files as for TeX that hyphenates
    almost all words in a correct way. Then I found following statement in
    XEP documentation:

    "The hyphenator implements a simplified version of Liang’s algorithm
    (the same as used in TeX), and
    reuses TeX hyphenation patterns. Unlike TeX, hyphenation points aren’t
    prioritized: all possible word
    breaks are considered equivalent."

    It seems that missing prioritizations is a big problem for Czech
    language. Do you plan to improve your algorithm in a near future?
