I guess, for this to work smoothly there must be also modified bold
and italic versions of default Oberon font. And with correct names.
This can be done.
Besides I was assuming that there is a mapping (from ASCII to typographic signs)
- (ASCII minus) -> m-dash
_ (ASCII underscore) -> n-dash
and that just modifiying the Oberon font will affect the way hyphenation
is done. Well, looks. Now, after a bit of of trying it seems that both
Script.Mod and Hyphen.Mod use - (ASCII minus) for hyphenation. So, does
anyone know which is the use of "Oberon underscore"?
