Recently I wanted to prepare some Pāli text in the modified Roman
script. The main problem I'm struggling with is getting Tex/LaTeX to
hyphenate that for me correctly.
I tried to add support for Pāli language and hyphenation, mostly by
copying and modifying files for Polish language (+ hyphenation rules
generated by patgen, based on a list of Pāli words I hyphenated
I seem to have the language set up, but it still does not load the
Babel <v3.8m> and hyphenation patterns for english, dumylang,
english, usenglishmax, assamese, bengali, gujarati, hindi, kannada,
marathi, oriya, panjabi, tamil, telugu, sanskrit, polish, loaded.
although I have the (I think correct) entry in language.dat:
english hyphen.tex % do not change!
Can you tell me, if there is some kind of manual or at least a list of
things to do, to add support for language/hyphenation? I couldn't find
anything on the web.
I'm currently using texlive 2012 distribution on Gentoo Linux.
