Branch: pkgsrc-2010Q4, Version: 2010, Package name: tex-hyph-utf8-2010, Maintainer: minskim

Modern native UTF-8 engines such as XeTeX and LuaTeX need hyphenation
patterns in UTF-8 format, whereas older systems require hyphenation
patterns in the 8-bit encoding of the font in use (such encodings are
codified in the LaTeX scheme with names like OT1, T2A, TS1, OML, LY1,
etc). The present package offers a collection of conversions of
existing patterns to UTF- 8 format, together with converters for use
with 8-bit fonts in older systems. Since hyphenation patterns for TeX
are only read at iniTeX time, it is hoped that the UTF-8 patterns,
with their converters, will completely supplant the older patterns.
