Today and yesterday I worked through the review comments table at

http://www.w3.org/International/reviews/html5-bidi/

and brought it up-to-date (at least per my understanding).

I used Aharon's excellent summary in the google document at

https://docs.google.com/document/d/17nb3wlYkIG9MNtL1mlXVPOVe4QwyApiHRYim3nTi5CE/edit?hl=en&pli=1#

I also added to the table direct links to the bugs and to Aharon's document.

Here are some notes on what I did, and some questions I have.  Lines 
beginning with * are about the google docs doc.


[1] new attribute: ubi
Waiting on decision wrt use with output. I'm thinking we should perhaps 
close this comment and raise another bug for output?
STILL OPEN

[2] new dir attribute value: auto, and a new attribute: autodirmethod
the CSS isolate property is not applied to for ordinary elements.
STILL OPEN

[3] new attribute: submitdir
Aharon, note that textarea also supports the dirname attribute
'the directionality' is defined with reference to use of dir or 
defaults, but not by user intervention via the keyboard - is this 
significant?
CLOSED

[4] new attribute: bidibreak
bug 10828 still open because it turns out IE treats br as whitespace in 
version 8 and 9
bug 11211 closed
CLOSED
in google doc 3.1
* link to css test fails!
* we should edit the information about IE in the doc itself - i make 
some light changes, but we may need to consider rewriting some more to 
take into account the ramifications of the IE situation
* seems to me that the CSS info is in the wrong place

[5]U+2028 and U+2029 in textarea and pre elements
* link to css test fails
CLOSED

[6] U+2028 and U+2029 in dialog text
CLOSED

[7] line breaks in textarea and pre elements
CLOSED

[8] line breaks in dialog text
CLOSED

[9] block-display elements should act as UBA paragraph breaks
* don't see the reference in the css spec at that link
STILL OPEN

[10] block elements with display:inline should get ubi instead of 
default dir
CLOSED

[11] default ignorable code points
CLOSED

[12] title element should support and inherit dir attribute
CLOSED

[14] title and alt attribute direction and two new attributes: titledir 
and altdir
CLOSED

[15] option element should support the dir attribute and be displayed 
accordingly both in the dropdown and after being chosen
CLOSED

[16] option element should support text-align CSS property and be 
displayed accordingly both in the dropdown and after being chosen
* not clear why we want to 'get rid of this change'
* what is the status wrt applying css text-align?
STILL OPEN

[17] setting input and textarea element direction through browser UI 
should set the dir attribute and trigger oninput event
* textarea is also covered
CLOSED

[18] on an OS that has a widespread UI convention for setting direction, 
user agent should support it on input and textarea elements
CLOSED

[19] when an input value is remembered, its direction should be 
remembered too
STILL OPEN

[20] list item marker display and position
STILL OPEN

[21] location of user agent window's overall vertical scrollbar
CLOSED

[22] 	location of an element's vertical scrollbar when it is not the 
user agent window's overall vertical scrollbar
CLOSED

[23] script dialog text direction
CLOSED
