ISSUE-270: Line breaks and justification

Line breaks and justification

Raised by:

Reported by: Nat McCully

When I wrote the mojikumi engine in InDesign, and we did some research into what Korean required, we found several things:

1) line-breaks are sometimes made only on spaces, but not all the time. We key off the justification settings (full-justified causes different line breaks than left-justified). I am interested in the experts' take on what is best and what the inter-dependences really are. This is the single most important feature of a text engine, so I would expect it to be mentioned first in the spec.
