Opt Subject: Word Break of Full Width Digits
Forwarding a report from Jungshik Shin regarding word break of Full Width Digits using ICU (which in turn implements UAX 29) > > When a string contains full width digits such as U+FF11 for the digit '1', > > using a RuleBasedBreakIterator for word breaks the character is not recognized > > as a digit. Using getRuleStatus on the position will return UBRK_WORD_NONE. UAX-29 places word boundaries between adjacent full width digits. I propose that the word break property of the full width digit characters be changed to Numeric. These characters do not currently have specifically assigned word break property, meaning they fall into the "any" bucket for the rules. Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge already group multi-digit full width numbers as words. The line break property would not be changed. It would remain ID (ideographic), allowing line breaks between the digits of a full width number.

Opt Subject: Editorial change for the update of UAX #29
The way the Georgian letters (in table 4) are specified is very ugly. It can be alleviated if the second row just says: U+10FD or U+10FF | (ჽ or ჿ) | GEORGIAN LETTER AEN or GEORGIAN LETTER LABIAL SIGN Similarly for the lower part: U+1CBD or U+1CBF | (Ჽ or Ჿ) | GEORGIAN MTAVRULI CAPITAL LETTER AEN or GEORGIAN MTAVRULI CAPITAL LETTER LABIAL SIGN Rules WB7b and WB7c, are difficult to read because it looks like "Double_Quote Hebrew_Letter" and Hebrew_Letter Double_Quote respectively are in fact a single entity rather than two. I propose to use a set of parentheses for cases like this. This has no impact on the algorithm at all. They would end up like this: WB7b. Hebrew_Letter × (Double_Quote)(Hebrew_Letter) WB7c. (Hebrew_Letter)(Double_Quote) × Hebrew_Letter
