As you mentioned in your other message, ISO/IEC 8859-11 does assign
U+00A0 NO-BREAK SPACE to code position 0xA0, but TIS 620 does not.
If you are asking whether the "word separator character" I mentioned
should be U+00A0, I don't think that would be a good idea for Thai since
U+00A0 is supposed to be rendered as a visible space (like U+0020) but
without breaking lines between the surrounding words. My understanding
is that visible spaces are not used in Thai. So U+00A0 would do exactly
the wrong thing for Thai, whereas U+200B would do the right thing
(indicating a word boundary without displaying a space). This is also
officially recommended by the Unicode Standard.
