You requested `ragggedright' setting ("quadding" is "start"). When TeX
is in that mode, it does not hyphenate. It _could_ do so, but I am
unclear about whether it _should_. Can someone with an encyclopedic
knowledge of DSSSL guide me?

For the TeXxies, what gets invoked is this:

\def\Q@start{% raggedright, I hope
  \rightskip\EndIndent plus 1fil

perhaps someone can remind me how you get "semi-ragged-right", ie
allowing some hyphenation in unjustified lines? I have known how to do 
it, but it escapes me just now


PS the file is in my /tmp which will get zapped when I reboot :-}
