New Working Group Note: Authoring HTML: Handling Right-to-left Scripts
The Internationalization Core Working Group has published Authoring HTML: Handling Right-to-left Scripts as a Working Group Note.
This document describes techniques for the use of HTML markup and CSS style sheets when creating content in languages that use right-to-left scripts, such as Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Thaana, Urdu, etc. It builds on (but also goes beyond) markup needed to supplement the Unicode bidirectional algorithm, and also touches on how to prepare content that will later be localized into right-to-left scripts.
