Hi, I currently use InDesign to work with complex Tibetan language documents. InDesign handles these unicode languages (formed of stacks of letters, like so: རྟུ) via their 'World-Ready Paragraph or Line editor facility. Is there a way facility for typesetting these kind of languages in Publisher? When I try I get collapses on certain characters. I haven't yet found a unicode character palette. Cheers, Paul
In Tibetan, especially in pechas, it is considered a special case, if the last syllable of an expression that is terminated by a shad ། breaks to a new line. In that case the shad ། ( U+0F0D ) is replaced by rin chen spungs shad ༑ ( U+0F11 ). This serves as an optitical indication that there is a left-over syllable at the beginning of the line that actually belongs to the preceding line. There does not seem to be a regular expression to find such orphaned syllables when the new lines is a result of formatting rather than an inserted line-break character. It's very tedious to hunt through a text to find and replace shads that occur after the first syllable on a line, so it would be a great help to have a feature that does this.
