ISSUE-308: Definition of 'grapheme cluster'

Definition of 'grapheme cluster'

State:
CLOSED
Product:
css-text
Raised by:

Opened on:
2013-12-06
Description:
1. Section 1.3: The description of "grapheme cluster" feels abbreviated and terse. Of particular concern to me is this sentence:

--
The UA may further tailor the definition as required by typographical tradition.
--

We think this could be clearer, perhaps by saying something similar to:

--
The UA may extend grapheme cluster boundaries as required by the typographical traditions, as identified by the content's language. [See discussion of "extended graphame cluster" in Section 3 of UAX#29]
