Description Philip J├Ągenstedt 2015-03-10 05:56:09 UTC

This is needed to control what happens to half-width digits in vertical text.

Only IE supports this right now - a bit early to put into the WebVTT spec, IMHO.

I can't speak for them BUT ... the largest implementer of WebVTT uses it for more than native browser support. They also have a global presence.
Comment 3 Silvia Pfeiffer 2015-09-26 22:09:36 UTC
OK, I'd be happy to add it unless a browser vendor would strongly object to this feature.
Comment 4 Silvia Pfeiffer 2015-09-30 18:27:32 UTC
Discussion at FOMS: used almost as often as ruby and should be part of the v1.
Comment 5 Silvia Pfeiffer 2015-09-30 18:29:31 UTC
Re-considering: it might hold up interoperable implementations, so leaving for later.
Comment 6 Dae Kim 2015-09-30 22:34:14 UTC
We should also specify:

When text-combine-upright is italicized, the direction of the slant must follow the vertical orientation, not the horizontal.
Comment 7 Simon Pieters 2015-11-05 14:31:45 UTC
Shouldn't the slanting match whatever CSS does?
