No. We don’t want your mon­ey. If you want to show your sup­port, we would great­ly ap­pre­ci­ate a link to mund​schenk​.at from your web­site — per­haps with a nice re­view of this plu­g­in. We would al­so great­ly ap­pre­ci­ate a 5-​star rat­ing for this plu­g­in in the Word­Press Plu­g­in Di­rec­to­ry.Read More →

Yes. In fact, We have done most of the work for you. I have sep­a­rat­ed all of the core func­tion­al­i­ty of wp-​Typography in­to a stand-​alone project — PHP Ty­pog­ra­phy — that is eas­i­ly port­ed to any oth­er PHP based con­tent man­age­ment sys­tem. There is even de­tailed doc­u­men­ta­tion of the PHP Ty­pog­ra­phy func­tion­al­i­ty.Read More →

Per­haps. wp-​Typography us­es a de­riv­a­tive of hy­phen­ation pat­terns de­vel­oped for the TeX plat­form. Here is a col­lec­tion of many of the avail­able TeX hy­phen­ation pat­tern files. You will need to find a file for the lan­guage you wish to ad­dress. Next, look in the source code for wp-​Typography at /php-Typography/lang_unformatted/template.txt, the spe­cif­ic needs of lan­guage spe­cif­ic hy­phen­ation pat­terns for this plu­g­in, and how to con­vert them from the orig­i­nal TeX pat­terns are de­tailed there. If a TeX pat­tern does not ex­ist, I sup­pose you could cre­ate one, but I don’t know where to di­rect you.Read More →

There are a few rea­sons: If I processed at the time of sav­ing a post, the changes are de­struc­tive. This means: If peo­ple to back to ed­it their work, there will be a mul­ti­tude of hid­den char­ac­ters that will in­ter­fere with their ef­forts Spell check would be bro­ken (in browsers like Fire­fox) If you dis­able the plu­g­in, the changes are still hard­cod­ed, and will not go away. Changes would on­ly ap­ply to posts saved af­ter the plu­g­in was en­abled (not on pre­vi­ous posts, since they have al­ready been saved, and thus would not trig­ger the ty­po­graph­ic fil­ter­ing). Set­tings would not be editable-​since pre­vi­ous fil­ter­ing is stored in the data­base,Read More →

No. The gen­er­al phi­los­o­phy of this plu­g­in is to en­able func­tion­al­i­ty that is oth­er­wise un­avail­able us­ing standards-​based web de­sign. Drop caps can be im­ple­ment­ed us­ing CSS. Here is an ex­am­ple: Class names and di­men­sions will need to be ad­just­ed to your spe­cif­ic ap­pli­ca­tion.Read More →

A wid­ow is the fi­nal word in a block of text that falls to its own line. Es­pe­cial­ly if the wid­ow is on­ly a few char­ac­ters long, she can get lone­ly. wp-​Typography will try to pro­tect wid­ows by bring­ing them com­pa­ny from the pre­vi­ous line. There is dan­ger that the widow’s com­pa­ny will leave the pre­vi­ous line with less than op­ti­mal word spac­ing. The risk is less if your text is left-​aligned, but if it is jus­ti­fied, tread care­ful­ly. The pro­tec­tion of wid­ows is com­plete­ly cus­tomiz­able in the ad­min­is­tra­tive op­tions.Read More →

The hy­phen­ation al­go­rithm used by wp-​Typography is based on the 1983 Stan­ford Ph.D. the­sis of pro­fes­sor Frank Liang: Word Hy-​phen-​a-​tion by Com-​puter. In this the­sis, Dr. Liang al­so de­vel­oped an Eng­lish (Unit­ed States) pat­tern file for use with his al­go­rithm. Liang’s Eng­lish pat­tern file was up­dat­ed in 1991 by Pe­ter Bre­it­en­lohn­er. The re­sult­ing al­go­rithm — with the Eng­lish (Unit­ed States) pat­terns — finds 90% of all al­lowed hy­phen­ation points iden­ti­fied in the Webster’s Unabridged Dic­tio­nary with a 0% er­ror rate. Pat­terns for many ad­di­tion­al lan­guages have been de­vel­oped by oth­ers and vary in qual­i­ty.Read More →
