I18N-ISSUE-54: Location of user agent window's overall vertical scrollbar [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/#vertical-scrollbar. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML and CSS specifications should state that the user agent window's overall vertical scrollbar should be located independent of the direction of any page element, despite being otherwise controlled by the style of the <body> element. (Thus, it should be located on the the "end" side relative to the user agent chrome direction.)

Please add comments to bugzilla:
