The article Typographic character units in complex scripts is out for wide review. We are looking for comments by Thurday 25 February.
CSS defines the typographic character unit as a basic unit of text for use with editing operations, however the meaning of a that term can vary according to the operation, and there are issues in working with such units in complex scripts. In this article we look at examples of some of those differences and issues.

The W3C Internationalization Activity has just published First Public Working Drafts for 6 more documents that explore gaps in language support on the World Wide Web.
- Adlam Gap Analysis
- Hebrew Gap Analysis
- German Gap Analysis
- French Gap Analysis
- N’Ko Gap Analysis
- Osage Gap Analysis
These drafts complement the 21 Gap-analysis documents published last June.
We are looking for expert contributors who can help us move this work forward by answering questions, documenting other gaps in support, and creating tests. For more information about the program, see this 15 minute overview (slides), and see the Language Enablement overview page.
