Much better. Only one out-of-margin. The problem is a URL. Fortunately, it's

Don't know if it was necessary, but I reconfigured after putting the command in

Actually, that would be the main distribution tree. The local TEXMF
tree would normally be under your user directory. On linux it is
usually ~/texmf, on the mac I suspect it probably is ~/Library/texmf
or perhaps ~/Application Support/texmf. Mac people would know more.
As a general rule, it is always better to put your personal additions

More questions about this, Jürgen. You said you use these routinely. Where 
should I put them? In the lyx preamble? And does the routine use apply to 
\usepackage{microtype}?

I my most recent compile of the document Stefano's been helping me with I have 
a bunch of characters outside the right margin, some in which there's an 
obvious hyphenation that could've been done. 

Thanks,

Create a text file "mytweaks.tex" and put them there. Save the file in your 
local TEXMF tree. Then you can simply put \input{mytweaks} to the preamble.

I put it in: /usr/local/texlive/2011/texmf. Is that right?

Actually, that would be the main distribution tree. The local TEXMF
tree would normally be under your user directory. On linux it is
usually ~/texmf, on the mac I suspect it probably is ~/Library/texmf
or perhaps ~/Application Support/texmf. Mac people would know more.
As a general rule, it is always better to put your personal additions
to the tex collection in your lcal tree. That way they will not be
overrun/erased/forgotten when you update texlive.

This means LaTeX has tried its best and can't figure out how to break 
the lines so as to make things un-ugly. So you have to do it manually, 
somehow. One option is to re-write the sentence very slightly, so as to 
fix the problem. Another is to suggest a spot for hyphenation that LaTeX 
might not have thought of, using

Insert Formatting Hyphenation Point
Yet another, more drastic, is to force LaTeX to break the line somewhere 
you specify with

Insert Formatting Justified Line Break
Note that the place to do any of these things may be the preceding or 
subsequent line, since, in some sense, LaTeX's problem may actually be 
there.

This means LaTeX has tried its best and can't figure out how to break 
the lines so as to make things un-ugly. So you have to do it manually, 
somehow. One option is to re-write the sentence very slightly, so as to 
fix the problem. Another is to suggest a spot for hyphenation that LaTeX 
might not have thought of, using

Insert> Formatting> Hyphenation Point
Yet another, more drastic, is to force LaTeX to break the line somewhere 
you specify with

Insert> Formatting> Justified Line Break
Note that the place to do any of these things may be the preceding or 
subsequent line, since, in some sense, LaTeX's problem may actually be 
there.

The "re-write the sentence" solution occurred to me, but I just couldn't see a 
way. Thanks for the other suggestions. Inserting a hyphen woulda been nice. 
Unfortunately the word in question is the possessive of a short 
one-syllabal-ish name, and it was the "'s" that was outside the margin. 

I think I like the font I ended up with, but I'll give the other options you 
suggest just for education-about-latex purposes.

Thanks again,

I always solve the problem by making hard hyphenation breaks (CTRL+-) in 
the word I want to hyphenate


for example you have the word "Justified" and you will have "Jus-ti-fied"

My experience is that with the below penalty changes, such overfull boxes 
never appear:

\tolerance 1414
\hbadness 1414
\emergencystretch 1.5em
\hfuzz 0.3pt

Furthermore

\usepackage{microtype}

helps.

The downside might be some more undefull boxes, but in general, the result 
here looks quite good, even with German, a notoriously difficult language when 
it comes to hyphenation.
