In UAX #14, rule LB15 states "Do not break within ‘”[’, even with
intervening spaces." This is formalised as
QU SP* × OP
What is the rationale behind this rule?
I can't think of any example where breaking at the intervening spaces
would create undesirable results, whereas NOT breaking at the intervening
spaces will tend to break up very short quotations in favour of keeping
the trailing end of the quotation together with a following parenthetical
As an example, given a sufficiently small text area width, the algorithm
will break text this way:
but never this way:
which is IMHO more logical.
