Description Philip Jägenstedt 2015-04-08 07:51:13 UTC
Bug 19458 introduced 'text-wrap: balance' in CSS Text:

Reference this and remove the "Regardless of the value of the 'white-space' property" bit.
Comment 1 Silvia Pfeiffer 2015-06-07 08:24:58 UTC
Should we leave this for v2 seeing as that spec is still unofficial?
Comment 2 Philip Jägenstedt 2015-06-08 12:22:14 UTC
Whatever we do with 'text-wrap: balance' I think we should remove our own steps attempting the same thing, as that isn't something anyone should ever implement.

I would like to refer to text-wrap:balance, and if that needs to be removed from /TR/webvtt1/ due to pub rules then so be it.
Comment 3 Silvia Pfeiffer 2015-06-08 12:48:20 UTC
OK, I believe we can reference unofficial specs until we get much further in the process. So, let's give this a go.

Note that this introduces a dependency on CSS Text 4 which is still in editor's draft.
