Character Wrapping

There are no delimiters (spaces) between words in Thai. This makes correct character wrapping difficult because of the combinations of spacing and non-spacing characters.

In Solaris 7 TLE character wrapping is done at the display cell, and the TLE software compensates for non-spacing characters when wrapping a line. For example, when a forward spacing character is typed in the last column of a line, the cursor advances to the next line. If a non-spacing character is typed at the same point, the cursor does not advance to the next line. The non-spacing character is displayed in the last display cell of the previous line, and the cursor location remains unchanged.
