    non-standard hyphenation with Hunspell

    jortolafont

      The use of the Hunspell dictionaries to InDesign has been a great addition. However, I've encountered one problem (a bug in the plugin?). The non-standard hyphenation rules as described here

       

      http://sunet.dl.sourceforge.net/project/hunspell/Hyphen/documentation/tb87nemeth.pdf

       

      doesn't work properly.

       

      In the Catalan hyphenation dictionary, for example, we have these rules:

       

       

      % patrons per a la ela geminada

      l·3l/=,2,1

      ŀ3l/l=,1,1

       

      I.e., the middot disappears if a hyphen is inserted.

       

      I get nonsense results in words with a middot, and the middot doesn't disappear in the text:

      intel~~·l~~igè~~ncia

       

      It should be something like:

      intel~~·li~~gèn~~cia

       

      Is this happening in other languages? Is there a bug in the Hunspell plugin?
