Description:
------------
IntlBreakIterator documentation doesn't shed much light on how to use the Word Break Iterator. Having an example of usage would be great, as I'd like to use it in combination with the latest ICU to process Lao text inserting zero-width-spaces between words, in order that browsers will word-wrap correctly.

Ideally, an example would take some Lao text, such as some of the long lines of text on http://laosabbathschool.com/development/ssd/site/, and loop through each word, adding a zero-width-space at each possible break point. 

This documentation will greatly help all of us doing web products in Southeast Asia (Thai, Khmer, Burmese, & Lao all deal with the same problem) better support the languages we target.

Thanks!
