Hi Jack,

About the hyphenation - you are half right and half wrong ;)

You are right that LaTeX by default will not hyphenate already hyphenated words. However, as always, there is a package to correct this behavior: hyphenat.sty

I have made a demo just for you!

http://www.astrosmo.unam.mx/~w.henney/hyphentest/

hyphenat.sty should be part of any decent TeX installalation. If you have teTeX, then you can just type "texdoc hyphenat" to read the docs. Also, see the FAQ:

http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=nohyph

As for the overfull hboxes, if you use AUCTeX in emacs, you can turn on debugging of these with "C-c C-w", then they will show up as compilation errors and emacs will jump to the corresponding source line as you step through them.
