## Re: [help-texinfo] hyphenation with texinfo

    Can you help me to set Italian hyphenation in texinfo?

I'm afraid this isn't easy.  Here is one crude method that might work,
although I'm not completely sure:

1) Run LaTeX on the following file:
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[italian]{babel}
\begin{document}
\showthe\language
\end{document}

This will show some integer -- for the sake of argument, say it's 18.

2) Insert
\language=18
as the very first line of your Texinfo document, before the
\input texinfo.

I'll be interested to know if this works.  It depends on your plain.fmt
being dumped with the same hyphenations as latex.fmt, so there's lots of
room for problems.
