PDF-> EPUB conversion splits paragraph

PDF->EPUB conversion incorrectly splits paragraph where the line ends with character containing diacritics. Look into debuging folder shows that input/index.html contains paragraph:

„Já jsem ráda, žes to neudělal, ale jsem ti vděčná, žes mě<br>
před ním chránil.“<br>

which is processed in parsed/index.html as:

<p>„Já jsem ráda, žes to neudělal, ale jsem ti vděčná, žes mě</p>
<p>před ním chránil.“</p>

what is wrong because it creates two paragraphs from one because of character ě.

Do you know how can I fix paragraph splitting to handle also diacritics.

thanks

PDF conversion currently relies on detecting lower-case characters on the initial line. Unfortunately there isn't any library which defines what those lower-case characters are across all languages. ě wasn't in the list of characters, but it will be added for for one of the upcoming releases.

At some point in the future a new pdf engine will come out which uses other types of tests to decide when to unwrap a line, but for now the code is sticking with lowercase characters without punctuation.
