    I hadn't known it was available as a freely-downloadable .pdf.

it's also available from tug, at
along with the patgen program and tutorial.

    Found it 'cause I was searching for this gem of old lore:

    If all problems of hyphenation have not been solved,
    at least some progress has been made since that night,
    when according to legend, an RCA Marketing Manager
    received a phone call from a disturbed customer.
    His 301 had just hyphenated "God".
    ? Paul E. Justus (1972)

that's just so delightful!  brings back
memories of rca's early typesetting programs,
page-1 and page-2.  we've come a long way ...
