Hi Ralph,

I could not resist the temptation to procrastinate from my current work
and had a look at neatroff.

Really neat!

Out-of-the-box, my test file and TeX utf8 hyphenation patterns
taken straight from my TeX installation produced the attached very
satisfying result.

Best regards,

Hi Oliver,

Are you aware there are other troff implementations than GNU's groff?
Neatroff is one.  Ali Gholami Rudi wrote it because he wanted better
Unicode support for foreign languages, including right-to-left text.
He seems very much of your mould in needs.

A good summary of its features is
I see UTF-8 hyphenation files mentioned.
There's also whole-paragraph formatting and lots of other delights.
Rudi's has a Typesetting section past the initial
list of recent changes to his software.

Feel free to continue discussing neatroff here along with general troff
