Updated Working Draft: Indic Layout Requirements

Indic Layout Requirements describes the basic requirements for Indic script layout and text support on the Web and in Digital Publications. These requirements provide information for Web technologies such as CSS, HTML, and SVG about how to support users of Indic scripts. The current document focuses on Devanagari, but there are plans to widen the scope to encompass additional Indian scripts as time goes on.

Changes in the new version relate to initial letter styling in Devanagari text. Editorial changes were also made to bring the document in line with recent changes to the Internationalization Activity publishing process.

First Public Working Draft of Indic Layout Requirements published

The W3C Internationalization Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of Indic Layout Requirements on behalf of the Indic Layout Task Force, part of the W3C Internationalization Interest Group.

This document describes the basic requirements for Indic script layout and text support on the Web and in eBooks. These requirements provide information for Web technologies such as CSS, HTML and SVG about how to support users of Indic scripts. The current document focuses on Devanagari, but there are plans to widen the scope to encompass additional Indian scripts as time goes on.

Publication as a First Public Working Draft, signals the beginning of the process, rather than an end point. We are now looking for comments on the document. Please send any comments you have to public-i18n-indic@w3.org. The archive is public, but you need to subscribe to post to it.
