CSS Writing Modes Candidate Recommendation

The CSS Working Group has published Candidate Recommendation of CSS Writing Modes Level 3 and invites implementations. CSS Writing Modes Level 3 defines CSS handling of various international writing modes, such as left-to-right (e.g. Latin or Indic), right-to-left (e.g. Hebrew or Arabic), bidirectional (e.g. mixed Latin and Arabic) and vertical (e.g. Asian scripts).

Changes since the last Working Draft include renaming text-combine-horizontal to text-combine-upright and a handful of clarifications.

As always, please send feedback to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-writing-modes-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.) We would especially appreciate reviews of the layout rules, since they’re complex and likely to still have errors…
