A new version of Requirements for Japanese Text Layout has just been 
published at http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-jlreq-20111129/

The plan is to replace the current W3C WG Note at 
http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/NOTE-jlreq-20090604/ with the content of this 
new Working Draft after a period of review.

This document describes requirements for general Japanese layout 
realized with technologies like CSS, SVG and XSL-FO. The document is 
mainly based on a standard for Japanese layout, JIS X 4051, 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.

Please take a look at the new version, which is available in English and 
Japanese, and send any comments to public-i18n-cjk@w3.org (subscribe at 
the archive http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-i18n-cjk/). Use 
"[JLReq]" in the subject line of your email, followed by a brief subject.

Please send any comments before the end of December. We hope to publish 
the final version of the updated NOTE early in the New Year.
