New Working Draft of Requirements for Japanese Text Layout
A new version of Requirements for Japanese Text Layout has just been published as a Working Draft.
The plan is to replace the current W3C Working Group Note with the content of this new Working Draft after a period of review.
This document describes requirements for general Japanese layout realized with technologies such as CSS, SVG and XSL-FO. It is also being used by developers of other technologies, such as ebooks. The document builds on and further develops the Japanese standard for text layout, JIS X 4051.
This second version of the document contains a significant amount of additional information related to hanmen design, such as handling headings, placement of illustrations and tables, handling of notes and reference marks, etc.
Please take a look at the new version, which is available in English and Japanese, and send any comments to email@example.com (subscribe at the archive main page). Use “[JLReq]” in the subject line of your email, followed by a brief subject.
Send any comments before the end of December. We hope to publish the final version of the updated Working Group Note early in the New Year.
