Dear Kevin, Richard,
I'm redesigning a long-standing Armenian newspaper and
in the process am trying to get them to switch from the
typical hacked 8-bit encoding to Unicode. The problem
is that I would need to replace their hyphenation plug-
in (which works on PageMaker 6, and notably not 7) so
that they can switch to Unicode, preferably in InDesign.
I've heard that TeX and InDesign have a large degree of
overlap in terms of such extensions so I'm hoping this
might be a good place to ask the following: what would
it take to build such a plug-in for InDesign?

Note: they have an in-house expert linguist who can
compile the rules using some syntax, presumably
into some external "dictionary" file.

Please Advise,
Hrant Papazian
