W3C Workshop Report: Richer Internationalization for eBooks

A report is now available summarizing the Workshop on Richer Internationalization for eBooks, which took place 4 June in Tokyo.

Participants discussed topics such as how CSS Paged Media spec can already go a long way to support ebooks, various aspects of ruby annotation that are not yet addressed, how to handle ideographic characters that are not in the character encoding, how JavaScript can be relevant to ebooks (especially since internationalization features are currently being added to the core language), and the need to increase the availability and usability of Far Eastern fonts for ebooks, etc. The report also includes the results of a survey sent to Workshop participants immediately following the workshop to rank issues that were discussed.

The Workshop was Hosted by Keio University, and sponsored by Intel as well as W3C organization sponsor Google.
