The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Text Level 3
and a first public Working Draft of CSS Text Decoration Level 3, which was
split out from the previous CSS3 Text draft:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-text/
   http://www.w3.org/TR/css-text-decor-3/

CSS3 Text covers various aspects of text layout including white space
processing, text transformations, line breaking, justification, and
indentation.

CSS3 Text Decoration covers text decoration: the various line decoration
options from CSS2 as well as CJK-style emphasis dots and text shadows.

Both drafts include many additions to level 2 to address internationalization
concerns, allowing better typography in non-Western (and Western) scripts.

Significant changes since the previous CSS3 Text WD are listed at:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-css3-text-20121113/#changes
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-css-text-decor-3-20121113/#changes

Since there are no significant, known open issues, Koji and I are planning
for the next draft to be a Last Call Working Draft to be published in
December, and have requested review from the CSSWG accordingly. We would
also appreciate reviews from anyone else who has an interest in text layout
or CSS internationalization.

Please send any comments to the <www-style@w3.org> mailing list
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/
and please, prefix the subject line with
     [css3-text] or
     [css-text-decor-3]
(as I did on this message).

For the CSS WG,
