applyBreakingRules (Use Legacy Ethiopic and Amharic Line Breaking Rules)

This element specifies whether applications shall use a legacy set of line breaking rules when determining line breaks for text consisting of Ethiopic and/or Amharic characters.

Typically, when line breaking this text, applications should allow line breaks to occur after a character between the UTF-16 (hexadecimal) values 0x1361 and 0x1368 when those characters appear in the document's content. This element, when present with a val attribute value of true (or equivalent), specifies that when a line break would occur after a character between the UTF-16 hexadecimal) values 0x1361 and 0x1368, the line break shall occur before all instances of these characters (i.e. no break opportunity shall be afforded after a character in this range).

[Example: Consider a WordprocessingML document with a series of Ethopic characters in this range. The default presentation would have any line breaks pushed before or after these characters, ensuring that the characters remain together on a single line.

However, if this compatibility setting is turned on:

  <w:applyBreakingRules />

Then a line break opportunity must be afforded at any point in a range of these characters, as needed. end example]
