Bug Description

Thai tends to use codepoint U+200B (Zero Width Space) for line-breaking control; please add this to the Ubuntu Font Family, as this will particularly help Thai users.

Proprosed solution:
  * Map U+200B to the .null glyph (glyph index 1)

There's a bunch of easy stuff in this block that need filling out at some point (all various width thin/non-display spaces, Hyphen, nbsp, figure dash.

I'm really surprised that no other font has brought those glyphs in my substitution; in which case the non-displaying characters are possibly being masked by something from the Ubuntu Font Family.

summary: - Need glyph U+200B
+ Expansion: ZWSP (U+200B) Zero-Width Space
