Updated CSS3 Text; split out CSS3 Text Decoration

he CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of CSS Text Level 3 and a first public Working Draft of CSS Text Decoration Level 3, which was split out from the previous CSS3 Text draft.

CSS3 Text covers various aspects of text layout including white space processing, text transformations, line breaking, justification, and indentation. Significant changes since the previous WD are listed in the Changes section.

CSS3 Text Decoration covers text decoration: the various line decoration options as well as CJK-style emphasis dots and text shadows. Significant changes since the previous WD are listed in the Changes section.

Both drafts include many additions to CSS2 to address internationalization concerns, allowing better typography in non-Western (and Western) scripts.

Since there are no significant, known open issues, Koji and fantasai are planning for the next draft to be a Last Call Working Draft to be published in December, and have requested review from the CSSWG accordingly. We would also appreciate reviews from anyone else who has an interest in text layout or CSS internationalization.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css3-text] or ) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
