    That's because TeX hyphenation tables for Polish use custom
    sequences for polish diacritics instead of the semi-standard
    way TeX normally accepts, for example,

    /z instead of \.z,
    /l instead of \l ,


    /a instead of \ka

    I've modified the table accordingly and sent to you off-list
    so that you can check it (i did myself on Polish texts, the
    hyphenation looks reasonable, but my knowledge of Polish
    is very limited).
