We have some issues with hyphenation. It seems to us that hyphenation
defaults to English behavior when we are publishing other European


We have a question about the "codes" attribute in xep.xml file like the

(1) How does the values in @codes work with XEP processor?

(2) Do we need to do something in FO file?


<languages default-language="en-US" xml:base="hyphen/">

<language name="English (US)" codes="none en-US eng-US">

  <hyphenation pattern="hyphen.tex" />


<language name="English (UK)" codes="en-GB eng-GB en eng">

  <hyphenation pattern="ukhyphen.tex" />


<language name="Russian" codes="ru rus">

  <hyphenation pattern="ruhyphal.tex" encoding="koi8-r" />


<language name="French" codes="fr fra fre">

  <hyphenation pattern="frhyph_rx.tex" />


<language name="German" codes="de deu ger de-DE">

  <hyphenation pattern="dehyph_rx.tex" />


<language name="Spanish" codes="es esl spa">

  <hyphenation pattern="eshyph_rx.tex" />


<language name="Polish" codes="pl pol">

  <hyphenation pattern="plhyph_rx.tex" />




Could you take a look at our xep.xml configuration file (attached) and
see if they are properly set up?


Any help is much appreciated.
