· has traditionally been used eg in word processors to visually display
a blank character. But it was originally intended in ISO 8859-1 and
other places for the Catalan language, which uses it in words such
ac paral·lel. I think · is now listed in Unicode as a separator, and not
as alphabetical. I think that is an error. How can we correct it?

Kind regards
