    Is the hair space non-breaking?

    nathanwells Level 1

      I just started working with Khmer text in InDesign CS 5.5, and in order to use a Khmer hunspell dictionary for spelling I placed a hair space between words and applied a grep style of 1% horizontal width (because Khmer does not use spaces between words and InDesign doesn't think a zero-width space separates words like we normally do for Khmer).  Now I've run into a problem - it seems hair spaces do not allow for line breaks when using justified paragraph styles.

       

      Can anyone confirm that hair spaces do not allow for a line break?  And any suggestions on how to fix this issue?

       

      Thanks,
