No, I think it should be like:
you are right... but, where does the space get the level 1..?
it says at the top of UAX#9 that spaces get the level of the
surrounding text... but which rule does that...?
in the (Xn) rules, spaces get levels of 0 because there are no
in Rules (In) it deals with strong characters and numbers only
thats why ASDF gets the level of 1, and the space remains
at level 0...
in rule (L1) it doesnt deal with spaces between strong
to conclude, no rule states what to do exactly with WS
between strong character types (i.e R, AL, L)...
is it left to the implementation? i dont think so...
its logical enough to parse any sequences of WS and give
them the highest level of the nearby runs, or give them the
type of the nearby runs, but is that the standard way..?
any ideas what im doing wrong..?
