"Ven. Pandita", Sun, Jan 27, 2008 03:54 (CST)
I am a Buddhist monk who uses Lyx (1.5.3) and XeTex (part of TexLive 2007) on Ubuntu Linux (7.10) to type Pali, Sanskrit, phonetic symbols and English together in the same document.
The problem is that XeLatex would produce PDF files with seemingly random hyphenation in the middle of lines instead of at linebreaks. So I change the language setting of Lyx to Welsh, of which there is no language file on my system; my purpose is to force manual hyphenation. But that random mid-line hyphenation still appears.
What should I do to remedy it?Changing the language setting of Lyx to Welsh, of which there is no file on the system, as a way of forcing manual hyphenation - how like life.
(The opening line of this letter reminds me somehow of Anne Tyler's Morgan's Passing. An unimprovable way of introducing oneself, which one would naturally love to try.)
