Hi Richard (Ishida),

Could you convey my thanks to the UTC, as a representative of the discussion group, for their pushing through on the NNBSP changes. This will go a long way. We look forward to the changes to be seen in Mongolian applications' handling of NNBSP-words in the areas of words not breaking as these changes are implemented around the world.

Thanks,
Greg

/Unicode Standard Annex #29, Unicode Text Segmentation/, will be updated for Unicode 9.0. A draft of the proposed update <http://www.unicode.org/review/pri306/> is available for general public review and comment.

The Word_Break classification of U+202F NARROW NO-BREAK SPACE (NNBSP) is revised to correct the text segmentation behavior of U+202F for Mongolian usage. For further background on this issue and possible ways to address it, see PRI #308 <http://www.unicode.org/review/pri308/>,
/Property Change for U+202F NARROW NO-BREAK SPACE (NNBSP)/.

In this revision, the formerly empty Prepend class of the Grapheme_Cluster_Break property is redefined to consist of all prefixed format control characters and a few other characters with certain Indic_Syllabic_Category property values.

The corresponding property value changes will be incorporated in the UCD data files for Unicode 9.0.
