      Description

      Qt doesn't understand Zero-Width Space (ZWSP) as a word separator.

      This causes problem for some languages such as Khmer or other Indic languages that use Zero-Width Space to delimit words.

      More info here :

      It would be good if Qt recognized ZWSP as a separator for Khmer Script in the same way it recognizes a space for English. This would enable correct line breaks and word selection.
