I'm sorry, I understand these WebKit's bugs, but I do not understand the relationship of the topic and the bugs. Can you tell me what I'm missing?

#2 is a bug in Mac port, or more likely a bug in Core Text. Japanese implementers do not see the bug in their ports.

#4 and #5 only appears when WebKit use the complex code path, and if the port doesn't support vertical flow in the complex code path. The priority of the code path isn't high that I don't know if coming ports have the bug or not. I had some conversation with Chromium guys how to fix this issue, but nobody has time to work on it right now.

But this isn't a CSS issue, is this?

Koji
