Subject: Re: [BUG] Fill-paragraph issue with hidden emphasis markers and composed characters
Date: Tue, 10 Aug 2021 11:34:23 +1000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87pmumgjl4.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <CAC9BvE5sXk5pB6kZL72wsC-nMBbZbr=Hr8biwUXKR3U0vgqMUg@mail.gmail.com>

I was able to reproduce this using Emacs 28.0.50 and emacs -Q.

It is important to ensure both of the below paragraphs are completely
'unwrapped' i.e. all on one line and then wrap them with M-q. 

The result seems counter-intuitive to me - the second paragraph with an
extra character is wrapped correctly. The first paragraph has the first
line broken too early.

This is likely going to be a very difficult issue to fix. I'm not sure
how fill column mode is aware of add on features like prettify symbols
and hidden emphasis markers. Obviously it is aware at some level because
it does wrap the second paragraph correctly. My wild guess would be that
the second one works because the additional character breaks up the
'special' handling and allows fill column to correctly calculate the
'virtual' line length.
