What is the fun in using ZWJ, ZWNJ, ZWS et al , if only to be found stripped by many browsers and text editors !
If these ‘control’ characters are allowed to be entered in any context, it should remain there. It should be considered in sorting , collation etc. If we have to amend some rules for that lets not hesitate..
Either give these ‘control’ characters some value, or deprecate its use altogether.We find lot of problems with the use of these in Malayalam..If these are used to enforce the meaning of some words correctly, the stripping of these definitely would create undesirable outputs..
This problem is not limited to chillus or tta… this is a big problem than I initially intercepted.
eg:കൊയ്രാള becomes കൊയ്രാള when zws is stripped off…
Anyone @ the Unicode Think Tank, please consider the plea………
