Plus I just added a mode for ebooks. I can't export epubs yet, but I can generate tiny pdfs the size of a basic ebook reader screen, so for now that's what you get =)

Yiddish, hyphenation 

Another frustrating thing: there is no hyphenation pattern for Yiddish out there that I've been able to find, and I have no idea how to go about creating one. So no hyphenation except in extreme circumstances, where I can put a break in by hand... =(

I'd love some help... I emailed Raphael Finkel who seems to be into TeX and Yiddish and like computer science, but that was like two weeks ago and I've received no response.

Yiddish, hyphenation 

@derpayatz do you mean hyphens between wordclusters that German puts all together, or between syllables?
