CSS Writing Modes: L3 Updated, L4 to Candidate Recommendation

Categories: publications

The CSS WG has published an updated Candidate Recommendation of CSS Writing Modes Level 3 and a Candidate Recommendation of CSS Writing Modes Level 4 (as promised).

CSS Writing Modes defines CSS support for various international writing modes, such as left-to-right (e.g. Latin or Indic), right-to-left (e.g. Hebrew or Arabic), bidirectional (e.g. mixed Latin and Arabic) and vertical (e.g. Asian scripts).

The publication is a minor update to Level 3 (and corresponding update to Level 4) to correctly handle max-height (in addition to height) when calculating auto sizes of orthogonal flows. Otherwise the only change to Level 4 was to upgrade its status to “Candidate Recommendation”, to match where the featureset was at when it was deferred from Level 3.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-writing-modes]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
