Description nemeth.lacko 2006-01-27 00:34:38 UTC
At least for African languages with special latin letters (and with no 8-bit
character encodings) and for professional hyphenation need Unicode support.

SBA: In order to verify this, I'd like to know one or more examples/scenarios. 
Thank you.
Comment 4 nemeth.lacko 2006-02-03 12:07:19 UTC
Nemeth->SBA: One of the two tests in the Issue 58558 is a Unicode test:

Test.dic is an UTF-8, test2.dic is a 8-bit example. If you load the 
hyphexample.odt, the en_US assigned UTF-8 test.dic will work. If you change to
document language to British English, en_GB assigned 8-bit test will work. In
this case, if the 8-bit example works, you won't see any change, because 8-bit
example does the same hyphenation, as UTF-8's one. Maybe compare with the
unhpyhenated texts. I'm sorry, I forgot mention this in the README.

Seemingly, that test not perfect for Unicode, but middle dot in the Catalan
example is a multibyte UTF-8 character in the source.

But I am attaching the German hyphenation patterns in Unicode, generated with a
simple ISO8859-1 -> UTF-8 conversion, and changed header to UTF-8. Check with
some German words with not ASCII letters (öüä). (The words may be fictive, too.)

Best regards, Laci
