> I use pdfLaTeX, Version 3.14159-14e-released-20000217 (MiKTeX 1.20e
> (Snapshot build 187)) to create documents with prtuding chars. However,
> I found out that the hyphen is only protuding, when it is genearated by
> the automatic hyphenation algorithm, not if I type it in directly.
> If I type the hyphen directly, the value of rpcode is not used.
> Here is a small example. After pdflatexing it will look like:
> This is a test with a verylongword. This is a test with a very-
> veryverylongword. This is a test with a veryveryveryverylong-
> word. This is a test with a veryveryverylongword. This is a test
> with a veryveryverylongword.
> Only the first hyphen does what it schould.
> I checked the resulting dvi and found out that both hyphens use char 45,
> as they should.
> Any Idea?
sorry to say this: please update your pdftex.
