zbedic is a dictionary program for the Zaurus written by Latchesar Ionkov and Rafal Mantiuk; this version of ZBedic implements Thai dictionary sorting order.
Sorting Thai words into order is nontrivial because of the presence of leading vowels and tone markers. Theppitak Karoonboonyanan has written a useful guide to Thai sorting algorithms. The original zbedic supports user defined character precedence when generating a dictionary file but this is not sufficient to support Thai therefore I have patched the bedic library to support Thai dictionary order. I implemented the method by Londe and Warotamasikkhadit.
The difference is in the list of words on the left.
Asides from my other tips for creating zbedic dictionary files, when using this patched version:
mkbedicbuilt from the patched libbedic
char-precedence, it will be ignored if you do

Note: If you do not use Thai dictionaries then there is no benefit to using my patched version.
