Thanks for your time.

I included defaulthyphenchar definition as the hyphenation character was not
getting displayed. In that sense, the first error is same as the one I have
pasted earlier or the next error you in the log. I am not able to debug this
error and also don' t know how to make the hyphen character display.

Appreciate your further help.
