Updated Working Draft: Handling Right-to-left Scripts in XHTML and HTML Content

Read the Working Draft

The Internationalization Core Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of this internationalization best practices document to show progress so far.

Part of a series designed for authors, the document will provide advice for the use of XHTML or HTML markup and CSS to create pages for languages that use right-to-left scripts, such as Arabic and Hebrew. It attempts to counter many of the misunderstandings or over-complexities that currently abound.

The title has been changed to reflect that these are ‘Best practices’ rather than ‘Techniques’, and the content and format has been substantially reworked.

Editor: Richard Ishida.
