CSS Ruby Level 1 Published

The CSSWG published a Working Draft of CSS Ruby Level 1 this week. This module describes the rendering model and formatting controls related to displaying ruby annotations in CSS.

The new draft extends the model to handle HTML5 ruby markup, and adds details on box generation, layout, alignment and justification, white space handling, line breaking, and various other details. In addition, the CSS properties offering control over ruby layout have been reduced, simplified, and aligned better with existing CSS controls in other layout models. Significant changes since the 2003 version are listed in the Changes section.

Comments are welcome on all aspects of this draft. As it’s a rather radical rewrite of the old spec, this is essentially a “first” draft of the CSS Ruby model, and we would appreciate feedback on the correctness and reasonableness of all the newly-specified details.

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