Description thomas.lange 2010-08-11 06:54:54 UTC
Ligatures prove to be word breaking for spell checking. However they are not for
thesaurus and hyhenation.

Fixed in CWS tl82.

There are Latin and Armenian ligatures in Unicode: 
They range from 0xFB00-0xFB06 and 0xFB13-0xFB17

ff  fi  fl  ffi  ffl  ſt  st

Example for words with ligatures:
ruffle  fish  floating  office  offline  ſtep  west  

TL->SBA: Please note that
a) currently ligatures are only supported by the en-US dictionary set that comes
along with OOo.
b) also the above one currently has only support for the first 5 ligatures and
not yet for the two st ligatures.
c) Armenian ligatures should work as well but I skipped searching for examples

tl->es: please verify. Thanks!
Comment 6 thomas.lange 2010-09-13 08:27:09 UTC
tl->es: please note, that the last two ligatures are not supported by the
current en-US dictionary thus those will be marked as wrong. But at least you
can see that the whole word is reported in one chunk and thus that those
ligatures also no longer get split for spell checking.
