    Dear Elliotte,

    ISO-8859-11 has been finished for almost year :)

    for refs:
    ISO-8859-11 8-bit single-byte coded graphic character sets -- Part 11:
    Latin/Thai alphabet

    or see its draft at

    ISO-8859-11 = TIS-620 + { NBSP }

    NBSP = Non-Breaking Space (0xA0 / U+00A0)

    imho, they should be replace with "UNDEFINED",
    since in other unicode mapping of CP874 (another Thai encoding,
    which is almost the same as Windows-874, the TIS-620 varaints)
    they also use "UNDEFINED".
    you may interesting in some comments from
