>For Wachstube the user has to put the soft hyphen. (as hinted
Right. I thought you were suggesting an algorithm that could
add ZWL (or control ligation using whatever means); so clearly
there are cases where the user needs to be able to control
ligation. The open question, then, is what is the appropriate
mechanism for that control.
>Why should he insert both a soft hyphen and a non-ligator?
If he/she does not what hyphenation in the whole paragraph,
programs allows to switch hyphenation off. So he/she can use
soft hyphen although no hyphenation is desired. But if one
hyphenation, but not in that particular word, but the letters
can form a ligature should not ligate here?
OK, you've convinced me that using soft hyphen is probably not
a good way to control ligation.
