Dear all,

After having received some information from Felix on IRC, I suggest to change Felix' proposal related to directionality as follows:

---
The values of the Directionality data category rely on properties of text as defined by [CSS 2.1] or its successor:

"ltr": Left-to-right text. The effect of this value is defined by the CSS2-1 rule 

* { unicode-bidi: embed; direction: ltr}

"rtl": Right-to-left text. The effect of this value is defined by the CSS2-1 rule 

* { unicode-bidi: embed; direction: rtl}

"lro": Left-to-right override. The effect of this value is defined by the CSS2-1 rule 

* { unicode-bidi: bidi-override; direction: ltr}

"rlo": Right-to-left override. The effect of this value is defined by the CSS2-1 rule

* { unicode-bidi: bidi-override; direction: rtl}

<p dir="ltr"> thus for example defines the directionality of a certain p element and its child
elements. 

Note:

ITS only defines general inheritance of directionality. By contrast, [CSS 2.1] or its successor define behavior which goes beyond this behavior. [CSS 2.1] for example defines specific inheritance and differentiates between block and inline elements.

Applications with implement the Directionality data category are encouraged to implemented the more comprehensive behavior defined in [CSS 2.1].
---

The changes related to Ruby look alright to me.

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Felix,

Thanks for working on the action item.

I guess I am lacking some knowledge to understand 

http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#directionality-definition

I wonder for example whether [dir="ltr"] { unicode-bidi: embed; direction: ltr} is valid CSS.

Wrt. http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3466

I have to admit they I have lost track of the relationship between Ruby and ITS which is
currently supported by the spec.

Regards,
Christian

Hi all,

I implemented issue 3466, which includes:
- action item http://www.w3.org/2006/09/20-i18nits-minutes.html#action02
Felix to draft a text for the CSS issue. See
http://www.w3.org/International/its/itstagset/itstagset.html#directionality-definition
for the text.
- action item http://www.w3.org/2006/09/20-i18nits-minutes.html#action11
Felix to implement http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=3466.
This encompasses a subsection 3.5 on "Usage of Internationalized
Resource Identifiers in ITS", the delition of conformance clause 2-2 for
ruby / directionality , and the change of references (Ruby and
directionality are only non-normative referenced now).

Cheers,

Felix
