As requested - some diagrams to illustrate the proposed temporal fill
attributes. These are NOT real world examples - but are intended to give an
idea of how I would anticipate these attributes to affect the display of
Timed Text content.
I believe that these proposed attributes are required for any 'relaxed'
profile for Timed Text. It is obvious that all of the effects I describe in
the attached documents might be produced by extensive use of selection
mechanisms and XSL/CSS style attributes. However IMHO this would be an
extremely onerous task and, even if performed automatically by an authoring
tool, would probably create very large output files.
Three diagrammatic files showing the impact of the proposed attributes;
temporal fill direction, temporal fill mode and temporal block clear mode.
Apologies for MS format - but it does allow an easy representation of what
should appear on the display area.
