The CSS3 modules currently in development will introduce a large number of properties designed to support non-Latin text, from vertical script support to kashida justification, from ruby positioning to list numbering. This tutorial will give you a glimpse of some of the properties that lie in store, and discuss how you can help to make these improvements a reality. This tutorial has been significantly rewritten since its earlier drafts, and has been through a wide review period.

After reading this tutorial you should:

    * have a general picture of the types of text control that will be available for non-Latin scripts in CSS3
    * understand the status of the work, and what you can do to help move the work forward.
