Hi all, I don't have enough time to elaborate on this right now, but better I tell it before I forget it ;).
To this date I and all people I know at FarsiWeb project used to say hyphenation is not and should not be used in Persian text, but after seeing some examples in some hardcopy books I came up to the conclusion that hyphenation IS allowed in Persian: Hyphenation can be used to break a word phrase across two lines from the places that words have formed the phrase. For example something like "zedde-aab" can be hyphenated in between the two parts. In many cases it means when we use ZWNJ today, but not in all cases (like "zedde-aab" example). Note that affixes cannot be hyphenated. I really think we need a better character for sub-word boundaries in Persian... behdad _______________________________________________ PersianComputing mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/persiancomputing
