In the work in progress, various stretches of ancient Greek text have
additional characters interpolated into them to indicate (the nature
of) scholarly emendations made. For example, the XML input :
<Other_Notes>f.≈Br:<image status="active" source="L40.2-G5-[B1]"
callout="Other_Notes"></image> “<foreign language="Greek">Σωσον
Κ<expan>ύρι</expan>ε τῶν λα<expan>ον</expan> σου καὶ ευλογησον τὴν
κλ<supplied>η</supplied>ρονομια<supplied>ν</supplied> σου νίκας τῆς
βα<supplied>σιλεύσι</supplied></foreign>”; ... </Otyher notes>
will, after TeX's macro expansion, yield (in part) :
f.(kern)Br: Σωσον Κ(ύρι)ε τῶν λα(ον) σου καὶ ευλογησον τὴν
Empirically, it would seem that the presence of the interpolated round
and angle brackets affects TeX's ability to hyphenate such stretches of
text; could the hyphenation experts suggest a work-around, please ?
