r12a: there are cases where you need to isolate a word from the surrounding text
08:36:16 [MikeSmith]
r12a: the isolation issue is really important when you don't know the directionality of the surrounding text but it's *also* important even when you do know
08:36:41 [MikeSmith]
r12a: the Unicode Consortium is going to introduce some new character codes to address this
08:36:55 [MikeSmith]
… and the CSS specifications are going to be updated to address this
08:37:16 [MikeSmith]
… and the Unicode Consortium is going to be saying that isolation should be use by default

I have made the request to generate http://www.w3.org/2012/11/02-html-wg-minutes.html MikeSmith
08:49:45 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: there is "mono ruby" and "group ruby" and from a markup perspective, those are the same
08:49:51 [Joshue108]
Joshue108 has joined #html-wg
08:50:12 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: we also have "jukugo ruby" which looks the same basically but is different for line breaking
08:50:18 [MikeSmith]
… you have to know what the grouping is
08:50:45 [MikeSmith]
… so that you don't break them in the wrong place (among other things)
08:50:58 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: that XHTML WG came up with a bunch of elements
08:51:14 [MikeSmith]
… the HTML WG came up with a simpler solution
08:51:38 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: but aside from the number elements, the model for the two approaches are quite different
08:51:57 [MikeSmith]
… it is a "column-based model" vs a "row-based model"
08:52:43 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: is you are displaying the ruby text inline -- which has some use cases such as, say, display on a mobile phone
08:52:56 [hsivonen]
q+
08:53:01 [MikeSmith]
… Stuff like that is very easy if you have a row-based model
08:53:15 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: that is a fallback issue, and important
08:53:30 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: another case is double-sided ruby
08:53:51 [MikeSmith]
… where you have annotations both above the character and below the character
08:54:19 [george]
george has joined #html-wg
08:54:19 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: with HTML5 ruby markup you can deal with this by using two rt elements
08:55:14 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: there are cases of double-sided ruby that you can't address just with multiple rt elements
08:55:28 [MikeSmith]
… So the solution proposed for that has been to use "nested ruby"
08:55:40 [MikeSmith]
… But there are problems with that
08:55:58 [MikeSmith]
… One problem is that it amounts to having two different models
08:56:32 [MikeSmith]
… And it requires different styling for nested ruby vs normal ruby
08:57:26 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: so an additional thing that has not been considered is that there are cases where you have the possibility of running out of room for the annotations
08:57:37 [MikeSmith]
… so that the annotations would end up overlapping
08:57:50 [MikeSmith]
… these are things that have to be handled at the style layer
08:58:13 [MikeSmith]
… so it's not a bunch of discrete boxes that don't know anything each other
08:58:26 [pal]
pal has joined #html-wg
08:58:38 [MikeSmith]
… you ideally need to know "what's in this box next to me"
08:59:07 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: I think the solution to all these problems is to go to a wholly row-based approach
08:59:23 [MikeSmith]
… which is the same approach that's used for the simple ruby case in HTML5
08:59:23 [Milan]
Milan has left #html-wg

09:04:17 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: depends on which case you mean?
09:04:36 [MikeSmith]

09:04:46 [MikeSmith]

09:06:22 [MikeSmith]
r12a: the jukugo ruby thing is not an issue -- you can achieve it by styling
09:06:42 [MikeSmith]

2nd item is:

- https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16965 i18n-ISSUE-97: Allowing a page to request a given locale (4.10.7.2 normativity)
09:09:23 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: responsive design is one case
09:09:40 [MikeSmith]
darobin: like the case where you want to make the case more compact
09:09:55 [MikeSmith]
hsivonen: OK, last, I think Hixie's argument was about frequency of use
09:10:49 [MikeSmith]
… and about implementor indifference. [The implementors should be focusing on implementing simple ruby before they implement complex ruby.]
09:11:19 [MikeSmith]
fantasai: question is, why aren't we going with the model that enables extension more easily?
09:11:23 [r12a]
http://www.w3.org/TR/ruby-use-cases/
09:12:01 [MikeSmith]
r12a: the i18n WG did not yet get a lot of traction saying that we should be doing things differently
09:12:10 [MikeSmith]
… Hixie has added double-sided support
09:12:26 [MikeSmith]
darobin: we could the same thing that we are doing for other features
09:12:43 [MikeSmith]
… we could flag the current model as "at risk" and publish an extension spec
09:13:06 [MikeSmith]
paulc: is the double-sided support that Hixie came up with already in our CR draft?

09:14:15 [MikeSmith]
(discussion)
09:14:34 [MikeSmith]
hsivonen: so the answer seems to be that it's unknown at this time
09:14:58 [MikeSmith]

… [translate attribute] is something for document consumers and not so much for user agents
09:18:32 [fantasai]
s/responsive design is one case/all three are valid points. Fallback is not just for legacy UAs, but also newer layout engines for which ruby is not a high priority -- at least they can render something sensible. Reponsive design, but also to have markup independent of styling--the author has the choice to decide on a different rendering without going back and changing the markup./

10:21:07 [matt]
paulc: There are two examples of the case just mentioned by hsivonen, Lachlan's objection to the polyglot document being on the Rec track and obviously if that FO was upheld it'd hardly make sense to take that document into CR.
10:21:40 [matt]
paulc: Then there's 2 objections to text alternatives.

mjs: After Lachlan made his formal objection to those docs being Rec track (rather than note), we made up a process that doesn't involve the whole change proposal dance for getting WG decision on what should be normative or not.
10:23:59 [matt]
mjs: The WG hasn't made a decision on these, the editors chose them being Rec track. No one chose to use that process, and it's unclear if it was because they didn't know the process or wanted FO.
10:24:08 [matt]
hsivonen: I was unaware of the process.
10:24:41 [matt]
mjs: It's not too late to do it now. Normativity of the document is a sort-of substantial change. If people didn't know about the process, we could do it now. The process is basically write a tracker issue and then have a preference poll.

10:25:33 [matt]
Steve: Yes. The doc I edit on alt techniques is normative because the corresponding advice in the HTML 5 spec is normative.
10:25:46 [matt]
Stevef: The reason I developed the document is because the HTML 5 spec wouldn't change.
10:25:59 [matt]
glenn: If the HTML 5 spec changed to use non-normative prose would that change your spec?

hsivonen, Lachy: I believe that bugs already exist regarding normatively of both of these specs

10:26:53 [matt]

paulc: Looking at this process, which is part of decision policy v3 -- though this text has been there unchanged for some time. We seem to only ever get into the first stage here, where editor's make up a draft and declare Rec or Note.

10:29:56 [matt]
paulc: I think mjs was saying it might be better to have a sense of the WG before going to the Director. Aren't we going to get that sense when we go to CfC on the documents?
10:30:13 [matt]
paulc: You are suggesting we ask it so we don't get objections at CfC so we can ask it separately?
10:30:53 [matt]
mjs: There might be people who are OK with it going to CfC either way and there may be people who object at the FO level until the end, even though the question has never gone to the full WG to decide. It's skipping a step to go from Editor's decision to Director without having the WG decide.

hsivonen: Cameron has said that it's easier to algorithmically produce XHTML, but I've got experience in this that shows that's not true. It's actually easier to put an HTML serializer at the end of the pipeline than try to teach a generic XML producer to learn polyglot.
10:37:07 [matt]
hsivonen: A generic XML tool won't produce polyglot and polyglot makes it harder to serialize than to use a serializer that uses HTML.

10:38:22 [matt]
paulc: That's one of the arguments going into it, and you could object to HTML 5 going to CR.
10:39:05 [matt]
paulc: That's step one. mjs would it be useful for the co-chairs to follow-up with a note to the Director saying we're continuing to work on these items. He gave us homework and if we change our mind we should tell him.
10:39:07 [matt]
mjs: Yes, we should probably tell him to hold off on those as the participants in those want to get a WG decision.
10:39:34 [matt]

paulc: It says it's on the Note track. When we publish this do we base i--
10:46:31 [matt]
MikeSmith: I'd say we need to republish the author doc. We don't have complete agreement that it should be a Rec track doc. I don't believe it should be personally, but others do.

MikeSmith: Simon is working on the diffs doc, it'd be a lot of work to do another version. I'm not sure it's worth the time to do it as there aren't going to be many differences that are just editorial.
10:47:20 [matt]
paulc: The high bar would be to publish both as WDs as we go to CR, but I'm hearing it's not important for the diffs doc.

paulc: I refer to this as a draft list and I believe your characterization is correct in that it's a wiki and that anyone who wanted to add something to the list did add it. Your second question is about procedure and we do need to get to consensus on what the features at risk are.
11:01:36 [matt]

11:02:34 [matt]
paulc: Having the Features at Risk has actually caused people to implement those features so they don't get cut rather than the other way around.
11:03:16 [matt]
jgraham: For several of the things on those lists I believe we already have multiple, largely interoperable implemented features. I don't think we should put anything on the list when they've already become part of the interoperable Web.
11:03:37 [plh]
q+ to talk about registerProtocolHandler
11:03:43 [matt]
jgraham: Specifically I'm looking at registerProtocolHandler. We've got implementations. I don't think it's appropriate to call it at risk from a spec point of view.

11:05:00 [matt]
plh: I would object to removing that from the list with my IETF hat on. The IETF do have concerns about that and I'd like it to remain on the list while we're working it over with IETF.
11:05:12 [matt]
plh: Not because of technical issues.
11:05:21 [matt]
darobin: It's about potential security risk?
11:05:36 [matt]
plh: Yes. I don't want to have to worry about having to remove it without it being marked Feature at Risk.
11:05:57 [matt]
jgraham: If it's such a serious concern that it'd have to be removed from implementations, even then it doesn't seem like it should be marked as a Feature at Risk.
11:06:29 [matt]
darobin: The at risk process lacks granularity. We might have to change it substantially, but it'd still have to be marked a Feature at Risk if we do have to blow it up.

hsivonen: Can someone explain to me what the purpose of at risk is?

11:07:37 [matt]

hsivonen: I believe all of the navigation stuff is potentially not interoperable exactly as written, so if we took the criteria of having stuff that might not be interoperably implemented or implementable, then it should be on that list. It'd be horrible to remove it.
11:09:43 [matt]
darobin: I don't disagree with you. I'd like to get this done without too much process. To answer your question: if we have to make some changes because interoperability problem then we're good to go if they're not too radical. I'd rather not have registerProtocolHandler be on the list because of IETF, but this might just be a good thing to be friendly to them.

Wonsuk has left #html-wg

11:11:24 [matt]

11:12:47 [matt]
paulc: We've had some discussion on objections to it, specifically registerProtocolHandler, was there any other?
11:12:55 [matt]
jgraham: AppCache is interoperably implemented --
11:13:23 [matt]
darobin: The reason it's there is purely procedural: we want to have the option of removing it and putting it in WebApps. If WebApps did a delta on this it might become a complete mess.
11:13:26 [matt]
jgraham: That makes sense.
11:13:33 [hsivonen]
q+
11:14:24 [matt]
paulc: We have three examples of principles of what goes on the list: AppCache because it might be done in an extension spec, non-interoperable items and the registerProtocolHandler is that we may get evidence from an external organization that there are significant security problems and that it might need to be removed even if there is interop.
11:14:32 [matt]
paulc: Is there anything missing from the list?
11:14:33 [matt]
q?
11:14:54 [matt]
hsivonen: What's the consequence of something missing on the list and then not fulfilling the CR exit criteria. I believe navigation won't fulfill the CR exit criteria.
11:15:08 [matt]

jgraham: the goal of the W3C is to lead the way. One of the goals is to make sure the standards are interoperable. More than getting individual to standards, we want to make them interoperable. We want to get rid of bugs that make it difficult to write interoperable apps.
15:21:28 [ddorwin]
jgraham: If there are tests that show a problem with interop, we should have a way of accepting that test regardless of process.
15:21:59 [ddorwin]
jgraham: It's not necessarily clear how we balance those two concerns. We don't want to be dropping/refusing tests because we have an immediate goal to get to Rec.

paulc: With our HTML5 public permissive CR exit criteria, identifying the places where we have some public evidence of interop is the best way to show where we need more tests to get out of CR. People may still want to provide more tests in that area. Going to testthewebforward and saying these are the places we need tests because we don't have any evidence would be curcial
15:31:41 [ddorwin]

15:45:50 [ddorwin]

paulc: It's not clear what the next step is after the WG gets a request.
16:07:56 [ddorwin]
paluc: Travis suggested doing a CfC.
16:09:26 [ddorwin]
mjs: How we have handled FPWDs in the past: First, we expect there to be some indication that the document is ready for FPWD. We have asked in a few cases to make it explicit to show some minimal number of independent contributors to the draft in order to show it is not just a 1-person project. Previously, we have required 3 independent contributors. A contributor can be someone who has filed a bug. We do a CfC. Usually the bar for objection is pretty high.

16:09:50 [ddorwin]
mjs: This is outside the scope is a valid objection, but I don't like this generally is not at the FPWD stage.
16:10:10 [ddorwin]
mjs: We haven't written down the process because we haven't expected a lot of them. But now we might with the new extension process.
16:10:24 [ddorwin]
mjs: We may need to step back and create a process.

16:12:12 [ddorwin]
SimponPieters: I think we should ask the question what is the implementation interest for what the spec is trying to target. For example, if the feature is targeted at search engines, we should ask if there is search engine interest.
16:12:32 [jgraham]
ack hsivonen
16:12:39 [ddorwin]
SimonPieters: If there isn't implementor interest, we should drop the draft even if there are 10 people involved.

hsivonen: The general public will think that things this group publishes will be part of HTML5. We should have a filter at the start of the process. For the conformance classes addressed by the spec…(?)
16:13:48 [cabanier]
q ?
16:14:25 [ddorwin]
Travis: I want to see less process and us having lots of extension specs because it gives us the opportunity for us to pick and choose and for the most popular ones to succeed. CSS 3 as an example.
16:14:57 [ddorwin]
Travis: We're already there in the public eye and browsers are not willy nilly with what they pick.

mjs: (implementor hat): It is annoying when specs are published that are very likely never going to be implemented by anyone but purport to provide conformance criteria.
16:17:23 [ddorwin]
mjs: … On the other hand, when someone is at the FPWD stage, I don't know whether it's something that we'll want to implemented.

16:17:59 [ddorwin]
mjs: … Apple doesn't speak about future plans and wouldn't want the process to involve explicitly saying I'm interested in implementing this.
16:18:49 [ddorwin]
hsivonen: I'm not expecting any implementor to commit to anything. Rather, I'm expecting implementors to say this is a good idea as a spec. But not looking for a commit.
16:19:40 [ddorwin]
hsivonen: As for iframe, I though that came about from IE4 being developed at the same time as HTML4 and emerged as a feedback cycle.
16:20:17 [ddorwin]
jgraham: I don't think that we should be putting things in FPWD just because we think that then the group might be able to force implementors to do things that certain members want.
16:20:30 [ddorwin]
jgraham: I don't think the HTML WG is a good proxy for what users want.

jgraham: Specs should have to survive on their own merit and not via branding
16:21:40 [DanielAustin]
historical note: iframe appeared in IE4, was repeatedly rejected as a proprietary extension, until members complained that they really wanted it
16:22:10 [ddorwin]
paulc: (Microsoft hat) The last thing we want is that FPWD means a majority of browser vendors have agreed to implement it.
16:22:28 [odinho_]
DanielAustin: Those were also very very dark times... More or less everything is different today.
16:22:37 [ddorwin]
paulc: I think a majority of the extensions fall on the end of the requirements that mjs suggested.
16:22:48 [ddorwin]
paulc: MSE and EME are examples.
