The W3C CSS Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of the CSS Text Module Level 3. This module covers various aspects of text layout including white space processing, text transformations, line breaking, justification, and indentation, including additions to level 2 to address internationalization concerns, allowing better typography in non-Western (and Western) scripts. Significant changes since the previous are listed in the changes section

The deadline for comments is Thursday 7 November 2013. If you need more time, please request an extension before the deadline so that we know to wait for your comments. We plan to process the bulk of the LC comments that weekend and during TPAC the week after. It’s okay if you need more time, we just need to know about it. :)

We would especially appreciate a detailed review from the following typographic communities where we are missing expertise, particularly on the topics of line-breaking and justification:

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-text-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
