I have just updated the hyphenator that my web pages rely upon. Depending on your language setting, this javascript analyses all words and inserts appropriate soft hyphens. This is particularly advantageous for languages with long word, like my German.

With the new version (4.1) of Hyphenator I have now understood how the mergeAndPack-Tool works; it results in a compressed format conducive to faster load times. Great software!
