We are in the process of adding Simplified Chinese translations of all the text, but the work is still in progress. All markup created during this process so far has been hidden in this document using CSS. It will be unhidden in a future Working Draft, once the work is completed.
A detailed list of changes, including diffs, can be found in the github commit log.
The Internationalization Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of Requirements for Chinese Text Layout (中文排版需求), on behalf of the Chinese Layout Task Force, part of the Internationalization Interest Group.
The document describes requirements for Chinese script layout and text support on the Web and in digital publications. These requirements inform developers of Web technologies such as CSS, HTML, and SVG, and inform browser and tool implementers, about how to support the needs of users in Chinese-speaking communities.
This is still a very early draft and the group is looking for comments and contributions to support the ongoing development of the document.
