Thank you for the info. The link says:

> Generalizing, Unicode line-breaking properties apply to all characters, and the rules specified in the Unicode line breaking algorithm [UAX14] apply.

and the current spec says:

> Further information on line breaking conventions can be found in [JLREQ] and [JIS4051] for Japanese,[ZHMARK] for Chinese, and in [UAX14] for all scripts in Unicode.

So I suppose itís already covered. Thank you again for the info to confirm that anyway.
