Hello, All.
I'm DaeHyun Sung, I'm Korean.

I checked Korean Line break rules file (
i18npool/source/localedata/data/ko_KR.xml ).
Below is one of the file contents, Korean Line break rules file on


Korean Line break rules file ( i18npool/source/localedata/data/ko_KR.xml )
is an xml file format.
So, I want some characters, '<' and '>', But, There doesn't add some
characters '<' and '>'.

So, I converted '>' to '>'. '<' to '&lt'.

In the xml file, I had already converted  '>' to '>'. '<' to '&lt'. But,
It doesn't work on LibreOffice.

In Korean, The character '<'  can't end a line. Also The character '>'
can't start a line.
But, As a LibreOffice's xml rule, it doesn't define the Line Break rules in
Korean on LibreOffice.

Belows are the Example of Line Break rules in Korean.

How can I add the special characters '<' and '>' to the xml file?

Check it Please.
