Hi Dave,

Fantasai and I are aware of that we need a list of which properties are logical and which physical. The list should cover all CSS 2.1 properties, and all CSS3 properties that are already in CR.

Our plan is to come up with the 1st cut of the list within a week or two, but I expect there will be a lot of discussions after that; from logical correctness, consistencies, usefulness for RTL/vertical scripts, and implementation point of view. Is it possible for you to wait a little more, then help us to figure out the ideal spec for this from your point of view?

My gut feeling is shadows are physical, overflow and border-spacing are logical, and background I still need some more researches to figure it out. But as said above, all of them are still to be discussed at this point, and it'd be probably better to discuss by looking at the whole list.


Regards,
Koji

Subject: [css3-writing-modes] Properties with horizontal/vertical values

Are horizontal/vertical values physical or logical?  I think that they should all be physical, but I thought I'd bring it up for discussion.

Examples:

text-shadow
box-shadow
overflow-x/y
border-spacing
background-position
background-repeat
