Hi Taco,

this is exactly what I needed, thank you very much.

# Somewhat cleaner is to do it this way:
#   %%%%%%%
#   \definebreakpoints[czcompound]   
#   \definebreakpoint[czcompound][-][nleft=3,nright=3,type=4] 
# 
#   \appendtoks
#    \ifx\mylanguage\currentlanguage 
#       \setbreakpoints[czcompound] 
#    \else 
#       \resetbreakpoints
#    \fi
#   \to\everylanguage
# 
# It would be nice if that language= key would work, though (it is ignored, it seems)

I agree...

Best wishes,

Tomáš
