[XeTeX] Persian Hyphenation

There is a short description of the syntax of hyphenation patterns on  
this page:


It should allow you to understand what the rules in "hyph-grc.tex"  
mean. If there are no etymological patterns in Persian your task will  
be pretty simple. Otherwise it may be rather long and complicated.  
There are many examples of exceptions to general rules, due to  
etymological considerations, in "hyph-grc.tex"; for instance the rule
allows a break after ἀ. But the rule:
prevents it, so that the prefix ἀν- is not broken into two parts in  
the word ἀνάξιος.

Best wishes,
