XHTML Hyphenator

XHTML Hyphenator is a filter for XHTML documents that will insert soft hyphens at the proper hyphenation points. It will hyphenate all words in text nodes that are children of nodes in the XHTML namespace and not part of the header (or, long story short, the text part of an XHTML document and nothing else). The hyphenation pattern used is derived from the xml:lang attribute governing the text. Soft hyphens are displayed correctly by most modern browsers and not at all by Mozilla Firefox, so you won't break anything by inserting hyphens, and it improves the text appearance considerably.
