Re: [clreq] Do emphasis marks swap sides when JA is embedded in ZH?

Suggested text starter, as a subsection to go under 3 Line Composition.  This also covers the discussion in

# Text decoration

Straight or wavy lines alongside the text are typically used in Chinese to indicate proper nouns such as a person's name, a book title, or the name of a place (see Fig XX), rather than for emphasis like in underlining associated with Latin-script text. 

When two different proper nouns appear side-by-side, the underline should be broken between the two.

Usually lines (straight or wavy) appear to the left of the vertical line, but lines alongside vertical text should appear on the opposite side of items such as emphasis marks, ruby, etc (to avoid interference).

If a line of Chinese text contains some text in Japanese or another language, and there is a line associated with that text, the position of the line should follow the Chinese conventions (see Fig YY).
