For review: Can we derive base direction from language?
The article Can we derive base direction from language? is out for wide review. We are looking for comments by Thursday 1 April.
Sometimes people wonder whether it’s possible to obtain a definitive list of language tags which indicate a RTL base direction, so that there would be no need for separate direction metadata. This article looks into whether that is really feasible. (Spoiler: The W3C Internationalization Working Group believes it is not a feasible approach.)
