Re: Authority For Western Line Breaking Rules
UAX#14 is implimented by ICU (International Component for Unicode). But I am reported that ICU has such problem as it breaks like "UTF- 8". Perhaps, it also may not be permitted. If you compare the description of UAX#14 and Unicode database text, you will find that there are some difference. In my concept, UAX#14 is very ambitious, but it is a little too rough to be a standard. I am going to report these problems to the author, hoping that the standard will be more refined. Best regards, Tokushige Kobayashi > Reply to the original mail from: > xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx > However, I will comment that in my reasonably close (but somewhat late-night) reading of Annex 14, I did not see this--the way the rules are defined makes it pretty difficult to decode the rules without a really close reading--and I'm a person whose spent most of the last 10 years writing and decoding complex standards. I know that standards writers are always strapped for resources and that these sorts of annexes always get a lower priority, but it would be helpful if this annex could be made a little clearer, I think. At a minimum, a bit more discussion of the implications of the rules might be helpful. Cheers, Eliot -- W.
