Talk slides: Unicode Conference

On 20th October Richard Ishida and Aharon Lanin gave a talk entitled

Extending Bidi Support on the Web

at the Internationalization & Unicode Conference in Santa Clara, California, USA.

The talk describes proposals that have recently been put to the HTML and CSS Working Groups to improve handling of bidirectional text on the Web (for languages such as Arabic, Farsi, Hebrew, Urdu, etc). The talk gives a high-level overview, using examples, of most of the recommendations in the document Additional Requirements for Bidi in HTML. It also provides links in the notes to more detailed information and to HTML5 bug reports for those who want to know more and follow the discussions.
