Breaking out of hyphenation temporarily

  • Hi,

    I’ve been using hyphenator for about two years now and it’s always been a very reliable and helpful plugin. What I’d like to know, though, is how to disable hyphenation for a short passage of text.

    Say you’ve got a blog post that contains a sequence of very short paragraphs (as short as two or three lines), such as in a list environment or a bibliography. In those contexts, you would of course (according to good typographic practice) set your text ragged left instead of justified. And in a passage that is set ragged left, you might as well disable hyphenation, as that might reduce confusion (e.g. in bibliographies), and, if desired, emphasizes the »raggedness« of that passage more clearly. Temporarily switching off justification isn’t a problem:

    <div style="text-align: left">Eines schönen Tages wachte Gregor Samsa auf und wurde einfach so verhaftet.</div>

    but is it possible to do the same with hyphenator’s hyphenation?

    thanks in advance!
