Summary description: Small fix to let TeX hyphenate correctly word that contain 
partially emphasized substrings

License type: lppl

Announcement text:

This little package fixed the problem of of TeX missing to hyphenate letter 
strings, that TeX assumes to be words, that include an apostrophe followed by an 
emphasis command; this problem arises in Catalan French and Italian; hopefully 
soon also in Romansh. The cause of the problem is not the apostrophe, but the 
font change in the middle of the string. 


This package is located at 
.  More information is at 
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear).
