2017 TPAC Agenda

This year's TPAC will take place 6-10 November 2017. This page contains the Internationalization (I18N) WG's agenda. The working group will meet Monday, 6 November, and Tuesday, 7 November. This WG is PUBLIC and observers are welcome with permission of the Chair. Outside working groups are encouraged to ask for our time. All times are Pacific Standard Time (UTC-0800).

09:00 [-10:30] Typographic Maturity Matrix, CLDR, etc.

11:30 Inline bidi rewrite

12:00 Lunch

13:30 Charmod-Norm

15:00 - 16:30: Digital Publishing WG: Relations to User Agents (Richard, Benjamin)

  • Offlining of WP versus packaging of PWP
  • UI control
  • Meeting with Richard Ishida on the I18N efforts related to publishing

From Tzviya: I think that the rest of the session might be interesting for i18n. The other main topic is UI control, which comes down to who controls the UI, which has real ramifications for i18n. Some of the issues are as "simple" as does the author, user, or UA decide whether the publication scrolls or paginates. However, when you get into the area of multi-lingual content you would be alarmed to discover what some of the EPUB systems do today to make it work.
