Could you help me, how to correct word breakage in ePUB (Tamil font embedded).

My problem is:
I have created one ePUB (TAMIL font "SHREE-TAM-0800.TTF" embedded) and loaded in Ipad ibooks. It displays well but some word unwantedly broken and gives bad reading experience at the end of each line. (Refer attached screenshots)

So kindly help me how can i solve this issue.

Thanks in advance for suggestions and help.

You can maybe use & #8288; (with no space between & and #), which is a "word joiner" and ‌ (zero-width non-joiner) between words if needed. But you might need to insert these character everywhere if you want it to work in all situations...

I have tried all of the procedures mentioned above but no use.

Finally, I have found some solution and want to share with all.

Change your actual content (i.e .html/.xhtml) into UNICODE text using UNICODE converter. This method solved the unwanted word break issues.

Note: Fonts not required for the UNICODE formatted ePub and looks good in all devices.

All the .html/.xhtml files must be in Unicode anyway to work correctly. Not only for this.
