Just Published! New Version of Working Group Note, Requirements for Japanese Text Layout (日本語組版処理の要件)

Requirements for Japanese Text Layout describes requirements for Japanese layout realized with technologies like CSS, SVG and XSL-FO. For non-Japanese speakers it provides access to a wealth of detailed and authoritative information about Japanese typesetting. The document is mainly based on a standard for Japanese layout, JIS X 4051 and its authors include key contributors to that standard. However, it also addresses areas which are not covered by 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.

The document was created by the Japanese Layout Task Force (with participation from four W3C Working Groups, CSS, Internationalization Core, SVG and XSL)

A Japanese version is also available.

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 public-i18n-cjk@w3.org (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.

i18n Core Working Group helps gathering requirements on Japanese Layout

JLTF Task force homepage

The i18n Core Working Group is co-ordinating the Japanese Layout Taskforce (JLTF), a joint task force between the CSS, i18n Core, SVG and XSL groups. The goal of the JLTF task force is the creation of a document about requirements for Japanese layout realized with technologies like CSS, SVG or XSL-FO. Samples of KIHONHANMEN (one of the basic units of Japanese layout) have recently been made publicly available.

The task force is working mainly in Japanese, with mailing lists and translations into English for non-Japanese participants.
