# [texhax] hyphenation ...

Sirs,

A journal (Journal of Financial Economics) does NOT want hyphenation. Unfortunately, TeX hyphenates so well that forcing no hyphenation using:

\hyphenpenalty=10000
\exhyphenpenalty=10000

causes the tolerance to be exceeded and nasty blocks placed at the end of the line where hyphenation should occur. Is there any way to get TeX to not hyphenate and still leave the text without the nasty blocks at the end of the line and still get reasonable looking output? Any help here? bye ...
