% One of the reasons for this is that in the Dutch language a word % with a dieresis can be hyphenated just before the letter with the % umlaut, but the dieresis has to disappear if the word is broken % between the previous letter and the accented letter.
An % alternative is the slightly old-fashioned Dutch method with % initial double quotes lowered to the baseline, \dlqq This is a % quote'', which should be typed as \texttt{"`This is a quote"'}.
The standard behaviour of \TeX\ in this respect is % very unfortunate for languages such as Dutch and German, where % long compound words are quite normal and all one needs is a means % to indicate an extra hyphenation position on top of the ones that % \TeX\ can generate from the hyphenation patterns.
