Thanks, fixed internally.

While we're on the topic, I have a question about JIS X 4051 --
One of the requests Ishida made was to have a clearer definition
of the line breaking rules and the difference between "strict" and
"loose". With some help from one of Melinda Grant's HP colleagues,
I've come to understand that the difference is in whether the
line-breaking restrictions marked as "optional" are followed. Does
JIS X 4051 formulate the line-breaking rules in this manner, so
that I can thus rely on it for both sets of rules?
