Requirements for Japanese Text Layout[1] describes requirements for 
Japanese layout realized with technologies like CSS, SVG and XSL-FO. For 
non-Japanese speakers it provides access to a wealth of detailed and 
authoritative information about Japanese typesetting. The document is 
mainly based on a standard for Japanese layout, JIS X 4051 and its 
authors include key contributors to that standard. However, it also 
addresses areas which are not covered by JIS X 4051.

This second version of the document contains a significant amount of 
additional information related to hanmen design, such as handling 
headings, placement of illustrations and tables, handling of notes and 
reference marks, etc.

The document was created by the Japanese Layout Task Force[2] (with 
participation from four W3C Working Groups, CSS, Internationalization 
Core, SVG and XSL)

A Japanese version[3] is also available.
