Khmer Word-Breaking Patch for ICU Coming Soon!

One main issue that inhibits the easy use of Khmer on computers is the issue of word-breaking.  Since Khmer does not use spaces between words, we are forced to use a zero-width-space between words in order for computers to rightly split words.  There have been projects seeking to automate Khmer word-breaking, but in large measure they are either too slow or too inaccurate (or both).  Recently SBBIC was able to help submit a patch for ICU (International Components for Unicode – http://site.icu-project.org/) that automatically splits Khmer words based on a large word dictionary.  You can view the patch here: http://bugs.icu-project.org/trac/ticket/8329…
