I have no knowledge of the module, unfortunately. I don't know what
the issues would be. Breaking at whitespace would be safe, however.
We don't have any long words, which should also help.

Ah, so it's not one of those languages without whitespace, that should
make it easier.

At the moment I'm investigating ways to handle all languages,
including those without whitespace. I should be able to get something
working soon (I hope).

Plain text or formatted? There are plenty of Vietnamese webpages from
which you can copy text, or I can just send you some files. Tell me
what would be helpful.

Just some links to some pages would be good.

Have a nice day,
