`@-' and `@hyphenation': Helping TeX hyphenate
Although TeX's hyphenation algorithm is generally pretty good, it
does miss useful hyphenation points from time to time. (Or, far more
rarely, insert an incorrect hyphenation.) So, for documents with an
unusual vocabulary or when fine-tuning for a printed edition, you may
wish to help TeX out. Texinfo supports two commands for this:
Insert a discretionary hyphen, i.e., a place where TeX can (but
does not have to) hyphenate. This is especially useful when you
notice an overfull hbox is due to TeX missing a hyphenation (Note:
Overfull hboxes.). TeX will not insert any hyphenation points
in a word containing `@-'.
Tell TeX how to hyphenate HY-PHEN-A-TED WORDS. As shown, you put
a `-' at each hyphenation point. For example:
TeX only uses the specified hyphenation points when the words
match exactly, so give all necessary variants.
Info output is not hyphenated, so these commands have no effect there.
