Updated Working Draft: Best Practices for Authoring HTML: Handling Right-to-left Scripts

Read the Working Draft

The Internationalization Core Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of Best Practices for Authoring HTML: Handling Right-to-left Scripts.

This document provides advice for the use of HTML markup and CSS style sheets to create pages containing languages that use right-to-left scripts, such as Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Thaana, Urdu, etc.

The Working Group believes this document is complete and does not anticipate any substantive changes. This draft is provided as a last chance for review and feedback before publication as a Working Group Note.

Please send comments on this document to www-international@w3.org (publicly archived) by 28 July 2009.

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.

Authoring Techniques for HTML/XHTML Internationalization: 3 First Working Drafts issued

New First Working Drafts

The GEO Task Force of the Internationalization Working Group has published three First Working Drafts under the general title of Authoring Techniques for HTML/XHTML Internationalization. They are Characters and Encodings 1.0, Specifying the language of content 1.0 and Handling Bidirectional Text 1.0. These new documents have been separated out from what was previously a single document and updated. They provide HTML authors with techniques for developing internationalized HTML using XHTML 1.0, XHTML 1.1, or HTML 4.01, supported by CSS1, CSS2 and some aspects of CSS3.
