Description mhosken 2003-10-24 06:10:18 UTC
Some fonts used for extended Roman script and non-Roman scripts often treat "upper ASCII" (0x80-0xFF) as being 8-bit clean. This is fine for OpenOffice except that U+00AD is magic (soft hyphen). Can there be some way to disable the action of soft hyphen for a particular character format range (since the behaviour is linked to the font being used) and to treat it as a normal character that is always displayed from the font being used. The current behaviour will break many existing Word documents when imported since word holds the soft hyphen as a meta character, different from U+00AD.

Please Attach the documents which make this problem, so we can test it/faster to confirm. (Without the documents, we cannot confirm the problem easily/need more time) Don't forget to cut other part of the documents, so the file size is small, but we still able to see the problem.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
