Do you like typog­ra­phy? Are you tired of ragged right text? Do you have a Word­Press blog? Go here now! wp-Typography is the merger of wp-Typogrify and, more impor­tantly, wp-Hyphenate. I do LaTeX type­set­ting, and as a result, I’ve acquired an appre­ci­a­tion for prop­erly for­mat­ted text. If you ever tried using the CSS prop­erty text-align, you inevitably are dis­ap­pointed with the results because it resem­bles noth­ing like what LaTeX can pro­duce. You often have to make your text eye-jarringly wide to make it use­able, and that doesn’t always work. This is because the browser lacks built-in sup­port for hyphen­ation. This plu­gin makes up for this browser defi­ciency by insert­ing hyphen­ation hints, known as soft-hyphens, which the browser does under­stand. The algo­rithm is based on the one used in TeX to boot! Brilliant!
