    Thai is written without spaces between words, so one needs an advanced line-breaking algorithm to make sure not to break lines in the middle of words, etc. More at Wikipedia.

    I’d say that those bugs improve Thai layout more than rendering, but rendering has become an ambiguous term that means different things to different people in different contexts ;)
