<David> Hello Richard & Adisson

<David> I'm not up to date with I18N, but I thought I'd listen in :)


<r12a> I like to review some changes I made to the bidi techniques draft and get any feedback. They include the following:

<r12a> 1. changed Best Practices to Techniques throughout (and just removed from the title)

<r12a> 2. created 3 new techniques

<r12a> http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#scrollbar

<r12a> http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#iso_encoding

<r12a> http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#externalized_text

<r12a> 3. redesigned http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/uanotes and changed the links after each technique so that there is only one now, pointing to a section in the uanotes document. The uanotes document contains a short summary of any browser-specific note and pointers to tests and results for more information. It also contains links to the appropriate section or sections of the techniques index so you can find more information.

The document direction can be toggled through the document object model (DOM) (document.direction="ltr/rtl")

show "ltr" or "rtl"

<r12a> change 'see link below' in note to include the link right there

<r12a> IE 5 -> IE 5+

<r12a> fully bold Logical ordering

<r12a> consistent casing of 8-i/8-I

<r12a> David: make title ... Use the right ISO encoding for Hebrew

perhaps: "specify and use a logical order encoding for Hebrew"

<r12a> contrary to what is said -> by the way, contrary to what...

<r12a> make it last

<r12a> add alternative to use Windows 1255

Use the proper logical encoding name "ISO-8859-8-i"

scribe: for Hebrew

if you have to use an ISO encoding, use the proper encoding name for the logical encoding of hebrew

technique for...externalized text....

or on JavaScript dialog boxes.

perhaps: or in javascript dialog boxes (alerts)

<r12a> links to explain RLE, LRE and PDF

<r12a> expand IE

<r12a> tech 14, link to directional runs in glossary needs correcting
