Default Automatic hyphenation in French using Quark 6

We are mainly an English-language publisher, but we do some books in French. Unfortunately, our version of Quark only comes with the hyphenation rules for English, and the Quark website seems to be telling us that we'd need to switch to Passport (which we do not intend to do). Anyone know if there is some easy way to add a French hyphenation algorithm, or if we are stuck doing all the hyphenation manually?

Thanks,

d.

There are companies that specialize in producing algorithms for any language, and probably they produce one that is suitable for Quark.

Check this out:

(I'm an InDesign fan; it comes with much broader language support.)

Sounds a good offer, but if Diane's firm can't meet the requirements, she should ask Dieckmann GmbH, whose web site is mentioned on Quark's Passport page. Apparently, Passport's 23-language-programs is based on Dieckmann's algorithms, but Dieckmann seems to supply algorithm's for individual languages.
