Re: [xep-support] Hyphenation tip

Hello Jan,

If you have language="en" you are using the hyphen/ukhyphen.tex rules
file which is for English (UK). See xep.xml, the last section on
languages. This file allows "ht-tp".

You may wish to force US English rules by specifying language="en-US":
"http" does not get hyphenated.

You may also forbid hyphenation of "http" in UK rules:

$ diff -ubBr hyphen/ukhyphen.tex.orig hyphen/ukhyphen.tex
--- hyphen/ukhyphen.tex.orig 2009-05-06 19:13:46.000000000 +0400
+++ hyphen/ukhyphen.tex 2009-05-06 19:14:07.000000000 +0400
@@ -8576,4 +8576,5 @@

Obviously, you may disable hyphenation for the URLs in the source FO:

For example <fo:inline
hyphenate="false"></fo:inline> can be named
<fo:inline hyphenate="false"></fo:inline>

or, as Jirka Kosek and Dave Pawson say, add a keep-together="always".
