I’m typesetting some documents with XeLaTeX, using in the OS X distribution of Hoefler Text. Unfortunately, said font has had a nasty bug since forever: its default hyphen character is formatted for capital letters, not minuscule. The font has a proper hyphen glyph (glyph 16, accurately named “hyphen”).
It seems1 this glyph is not “linked”2 to any Unicode point, preventing me from using the suggested solution from Ornamental hyphenation character with Xe(La)TeX.
How can I use this glyph for hyphenation? Automatic, manual, or both?
- In Font Book.app, no Unicode point appears in the tooltip for this character.
- In case there was still any doubt, I have no idea of what a font file looks like.
