I don't know of any spell-checkers for Mongolian in Word.
Aaron, do you know of anything in the works for spell-checkers in Mongolian?

Word doesn't use WordBreakProperty.txt.  While Microsoft may take note of a recommended change to the file, the trouble with NNBSP should be reported independently.  The best argument would be what happens for spell-checking.  Does Word have a Mongolian spell-checker?
