Topic: HTML / I18N meeting notes review
13:42:26 [aphillip]
richard: don't think ruby should be marked at risk
13:42:44 [aphillip]
... some ideas that would be great to implement
13:42:49 [aphillip]
... but not in the time needed
13:43:02 [aphillip]
... and maybe not defined by then either
13:43:13 [aphillip]
... need ruby, double-sided ruby
13:43:19 [aphillip]
... so need to move forward
13:43:42 [aphillip]
norbert: hoping for some quick way to fix it
13:44:17 [aphillip]
richard: hoping what fantasai produces would be on top of current implementation
13:45:43 [aphillip]
... extension spec would be an alternative, but not removing anything
13:46:17 [aphillip]
... should say "disagree that we agree with 'at risk'"
13:46:42 [aphillip]
... if can't be produced in current time frame, expect that current design is used

Present: Richard, Norbert, Koji, Fantasai, Addison

13:48:26 [aphillip]
... without being at risk
13:51:29 [aphillip]
fantasai: think we can get a draft out by end of the year
13:51:39 [aphillip]
... with double-sided
13:51:49 [aphillip]
... compatible with what is already deployed
13:52:02 [aphillip]
... nesting might be at risk

richard: mobilizing folks to work on ruby
13:53:02 [aphillip]
... fantasai should be hooked up with them
13:53:10 [aphillip]
... outline soonest would be good
13:53:17 [aphillip]
fantasai: can make outline by end of month-ish
13:53:35 [RRSAgent]

(discussion of cast of implementers)
13:55:59 [aphillip]
richard: key thing: don't want to end up with no complex ruby
13:56:16 [aphillip]
... must get over hurdles with html5 and
13:59:24 [aphillip]
Norbert: local/floating time implementations
14:00:18 [aphillip]
... issue 97 needs more text (locale negotiation)
14:01:07 [aphillip]
addison: read bcp47 as rfc6067
14:01:11 [aphillip]
... ?
14:01:37 [aphillip]
richard: said "rest of WG doesn't agree me with, but think use calendar attr"
14:01:44 [aphillip]
... didn't go into details
14:01:50 [aphillip]

Topic: case sensitivity in CSS
14:47:01 [aphillip]
Norbert: (summarizes)
14:47:17 [aphillip]
... Tab prefers ASCII-sensitivity only
14:47:31 [aphillip]
... our preference seems to be Unicode case folding
14:47:45 [aphillip]
... has a few problems for Lt and Turkish
14:48:03 [aphillip]
richard: is there is a possibility that we don't do case-insensitive stuff at all
14:48:18 [aphillip]
... name counter styles need to be case-insensitive for existing items
14:48:35 [aphillip]
... so liimit to just those defined by CSS?
14:48:46 [aphillip]
... or extend to ASCII in general? Or to everything?
14:49:32 [Norbert]
CSS has already decided:
14:49:33 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate aphillip
14:49:33 [Norbert]
14:50:18 [aphillip]
... case insensitivity, with type to be defined
14:50:45 [aphillip]
richard: minimum is only existing items are case insensitive
14:51:16 [aphillip]
... Tab's preference was ASCII case insensitive
14:51:30 [aphillip]
... implication was make everything insensitive
14:52:27 [aphillip]
... if use case folding for full Unicode range, then turkic languages and lithuanian have problems
14:53:21 [aphillip]
addison: ASCII case insense sometimes a problem in Turkish too
14:54:40 [aphillip]
addison: users never see the case folded value?
14:55:07 [aphillip]
norbert: some way to access it
14:55:41 [aphillip]
koji: case folding slow?
14:56:31 [aphillip]
... incomplete by design
14:56:37 [aphillip]
... don't think it makes sense
15:01:16 [aphillip]
richard: HIT -> hit but not h\u0131t
15:02:42 [aphillip]
addison: that case never works with ASCII case-insensitive either
15:04:13 [aphillip]
koji: support ASCII case insensitivty only for backwards compatibility
15:04:31 [aphillip]
... not much use anyway, slightly better performance
15:10:41 [aphillip]

consensus: full Unicode case folding without special cases
15:30:34 [aphillip]
... and add a note for Turkic languages
15:31:09 [aphillip]

ISSUE-10 Use of case in bidi examples closed
15:44:56 [aphillip]
first green box in section 2.1
15:44:58 [aphillip]
The ‘direction’ property has no effect on bidi reordering when specified on inline elements whose ‘unicode-bidi’ property's value is ‘normal’.
15:46:34 [aphillip]
<p dir=ltr">foo bar baz <span dir=rtl>FOO BAR BAE</span></p>
15:48:17 [aphillip]
<p> dir=ltr><span dir=rtl>this has an ltr base direction</span></p>
15:49:57 [aphillip]
addison: really needs some explanation, as the meaning isn't clear
15:50:28 [aphillip]
15:51:53 [aphillip]
richard: options are leave as is or add text
15:52:08 [aphillip]
... normal (comma) <explain a bit>
15:52:49 [aphillip]
