Koji, the default display of italic Latin text in vertical text runs
is identical in both proposals (or at least what I *think* you're
proposing).  It's the *upright* display of Latin italics that will
differ.  This is why I said you need to clearly identify the behavior
when 'text-orientation: upright' is specified.  I think this is the
case your referring to above, no?

Does what you're proposing differ from Microsoft Word or Internet
Explorer behavior?
