No, not yet. My priority is on Text and Writing Modes, and line grid will come after that. The best closest one is 2003CR[1], but it could be wrong.

It'll be a separate spec from Text, but if you have ideas, wishes, or requirements you think is important, please add that to the wiki page for now.

Koji

I've started a wiki page for future Text ideas

http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/text4

So far I've only added Roman hanging punctuation and Glyph scaling, as most of the other things on my list (such as widow/orphan control) I've since found in other drafts, and others really only make sense if there is a multiline composer to control.

Is the idea of a baseline grid expressed anywhere? If so, I'd like a pointer to take a look. If not, I think it should go on a wiki brainstorming page somewhere.

Thanks,

Alan
