I am very pleased to announce that the CSS WG has published a Candidate 
Recommendation of the CSS Text Module Level 3:

This module has been a core part of the decades-long collaboration between the 
CSS Working Group and the Internationalization Working Group to bring 
internationalized typesetting capabilities to CSS and the Web platform.

Note: The feature set in early drafts of “CSS3 Text” was been split into three 
parts, with “CSS Writing Modes Level 3” and “CSS Text Decoration Level 3” 
having already progressed to CR (and beyond). The remaining typesetting 
features--focused on text transformation, line breaking, justification, 
spacing, and alignment--remain as “CSS Text Level 3”.

“CSS3 Text”:

This specification would not have been possible without the contributions of 
many experts across the W3C, Unicode, IDPF, and Japanese standards communities 
across the past two decades. As the longest continuing editor, I personally 
would like to thank my current and former co-editors their hard work, and also 
our relentless i18nWG reviewers for their knowledge and feedback. We are 
appreciative also of Microsoft, Netscape, Mozilla, Opera Software, Antenna 
House, Bloomberg, EAST Japan, Adobe, Hewlett-Packard, and Google for their 
support of our work in the CSSWG--and no less everyone who contributed to the 
outstanding W3C Internationalization programme which has continuously guided 
and informed our work.

As usual, changes since the previous Working Draft are documented in the 
Changes section:
There's also a Disposition of Comments covering all feedback received since 
the 2013 Last Call Working Draft:

Please send any comments to the CSSWG mailing list, <www-style@w3.org>, 
prefixed with [css-text-3] (as I did on this message) or (preferably) file 
them in the GitHub repository at

At this point CSS Text Level 3 is feature-frozen; further work in this area 
will continue in CSS Text Level 4. https://www.w3.org/TR/css-text-4/
