Name of contribution: outerhbox
Author's name: Jonathan Fine
Location on CTAN: /macros/generic/misc/outerhbox.sty
Summary description: outerhbox.sty - collect horizontal material for 
  contributing to a paragraph
License type: gpl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
Collects horizontal mode material into an \hbox, suitable for later 
\unhbox'ing into a paragraph.  For use with plain, LaTeX, ConTeXt, etc.

Provides \outerhbox, which is roughly similar to \hbox, except that 
material is set in outer horizontal mode.  This prevents TeX from 
optimising away math penalties and the like, that are needed when the 
material is \unhbox'ed.
