A simple procedure for cursive word oversegmentation is presented, which is based on the analysis of the handwritten profiles and on the extraction of ``white holes\'\'. It follows the policy of using simple rules on complex data and sophisticated rules on simpler data. Experimental results show robustness and performances comparable with the best ones presented in the literature.
