How we've managed to fix the smart quote issue for our locale (many
thanks to Mikhel and Eike!) I've got another headache I would like to
tackle. I've asked Eike but he's not entirely sure and suggested I ask
The problem is this: Gaelic restricts the breaking of hyphens across
lines if there are less than two letters before the hyphen. In effect,
this affects a finite number of prefixes, mostly:
n-WORD (e.g. ar n-aran)
t-WORD (e.g. an t-aran)
h-WORD (e.g. na h-aran)
an-WORD (e.g. seall an-seo)
(and a few more, I can, if necessary supply a full list).
At the moment, at the end of a line a word like an-seo just gets broken
seo. The only known fix is that once you're done writing, you do a
global replace of <an-> to <tU+2011> (i.e. a NON-BREAKING HYPHEN) etc.
Is there something one could exploit to force specific instance of
HYPHEN to the NON-BREAKING HYPHEN? The main problem I can see would be
that if one cannot distinguish between single t and t word finally,
something like cat-ghrìosaich might also end up with a non-breaking hyphen.
Eike suggested the following:
Maybe some rule for AutoCorrection could match this, but I'm not very
familiar with. However, the en-GB lists are under
extras/source/autocorr/lang/en-GB/ in the source tree, likely such rules
similar to the ones in
extras/source/autocorr/lang/en-GB/DocumentList.xml would go into
extras/source/autocorr/lang/gd-GB/DocumentList.xml and using something
<block-list:block block-list:abbreviated-name="n-.*" block-list:name="‑"/>
where the second "‑" is a U+2011 NON-BREAKING HYPHEN.
The ".*" seems to indicate "any sequence of non-word-boundary characters
including none", so also "n-" without a following WORD would be matched.
Apparently there is no support for ".+" or other regular expressions.
