Hi Nicolas and all,

I agree that zero width spaces work fine as a solution, but I think they
should not be understood as part of the syntax but as a punctual
(temporal?) remedy to certain scenarios. As mentioned before, in LaTeX
zero width spaces can produce unexpected effects and modify the final
form of the text (at least in luatex). I also don't know if it would be
useful to remove all zero width spaces in the export process, because in
some cases the user may want to keep them, as I think Maxim commented in
a previous message.

As for the solution of using complementary marks ("//...//", etc.), I
think it would undermine consistency, as those marks would only be to
fix exceptions.

It's a tricky subject...

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
