I18N-ISSUE-53: List item marker display and position [HTML5-bidi]


Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: HTML5-bidi

This is a part of the proposals made by the "Additional Requirements for Bidi in HTML" W3C First Public Working Draft. For a full description of the use cases, please see http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#lists. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should state that, by default, the markers of all "list-style-position:outside" items should disregard the list item element's computed direction, using the list element's computed direction instead for the marker's display and positioning.

CSS will provide means to control this. If the CSS default in this respect must differ, the default stylesheet should achieve the default behavior specified above.

Furthermore, the list marker text will be directionally isolated from the list item text, appearing in its own UBA paragraph.

Please add comments to bugzilla:
