Re: Mongolian NNBSP [I18N-ACTION-458]

Hi Richard,
MS word doesn't have a Mongolian spell-checker. Bolorsoft has developed 
a spell-checker for Mongolian ( It is a 
commercial product, which works with MS office, Open/LibreOffice and 
designed for both cyrillic Mongolian and traditional Mongolian script, 
but due to some difficulties (NNBSP, MVS etc.) traditional Mongolian 
version has not been released. We tested it first with Openoffice and 
got the word boundary problems.
We will test our MS word addon for traditional script now and notify the 
result asap.
