# [texhax] Punctuation around inline diagrams

Sat Jul 5 04:27:31 CEST 2008

```
Sorry Axel, I put that rather badly. What I mean is, I'm after
a general solution. It's at that stage (40+ chapters, 600 pages)
where I can't (reasonably) go through looking for every instance
of an object being too close to a line end. And if I make any edits
it may change.

I guess what I want to say in TeX is:

IF we just processed an object image AND the next char is a [comma,
period, colon or semicolon] AND it's at the end of a line

THEN temporarily make the penalty for putting the [comma,
period, colon or semicolon] on a new line very high.

Is that sort of thing possible to specify as a rule with document
wide scope?

Cheers,

Andy
