Description nemeth.lacko 2006-11-18 00:36:24 UTC
Words with hyphens are hyphenated with double hyphens in Polish, according to
the Polish orthography (for instance, hyphenation of "kong-fu" -> kong- -fu).

When I tried to set this hyphenation, there was a competition between the base
hyphenation of hyphens (it's independent from the hyphenation settings and the
hyphenator!) and the non-standard hyphenation by OOo's hyphenator. The result
was an occasional non-standard hyphenation (sometimes kong- fu, sometimes kong-
-fu, see screenshot). It would be fine to forbid the base hyphenation at hyphens
optionally, and to use only hyphenation patterns.

I don't understand : in OOo 2.3.1 and 2.4 (OOH680_m6) your document is in 	
Hungarian not in Polish. To verify : Select All > Format > Character

On the other hand, after having changed the language to polish, when I launch
hyphenation, hyphenator (OOH680_m6) suggests only "se=kun=do-wy" in the last
paragraph. Is it correct ?
Comment 5 nemeth.lacko 2008-02-11 09:37:48 UTC
I have loaded the "polish" hyphenation patterns to the Hungarian language (see
the "HYPH hu HU polish" line in the attached dictionary.lst), because I didn't
want to modify the original (with not repeating hyphens) Polish hyphenation in
my test.  

By the way, according to Marcin Miłkowski, repeating hyphens is not mandatory in
Polish word processing. I have found this tipographical issue in the Polish TeX
hyphenation patterns.

SBA->TL: Please have a llok, thx.
Comment 7 milek_pl 2008-02-11 15:38:18 UTC
Yes, this is not a mandatory rule but a preferred way of typesetting Polish
texts. So this is not exactly a defect rather than a nice enhancement. I'm
changing the issue type accordingly.
