revised agenda email (was RE: agenda+ Which definition of whitespace to use?)

I have added this (and other items) to the agenda. We have a substantial amount of work for our call tomorrow, so be prepared for me to be “efficient”.


Note that normally I do update the calendar but do not send updates to this list (and your inbox) after Monday. Today, given the number of agenda+ items, I have spammed you all with an update so that you can review the various links in advance of the call if you have time.

Internationalization is not a feature.

It is an architecture.

Subject: agenda+ Which definition of whitespace to use?


Specdev currently has

But this recommends 3 approaches, only 2 of which make it to the mustard, and it's still not clear to me which to use when.  

Other questions include:
- do we really want to recommend the use of Z property, especially given that it doesn't include obvious ASCII whitespace characters? Where did this recommendation come from?
- why are RLM and LRM included as whitespace in some definitions, but not RLI, LRI, PDI, etc.?

It would be great if we could discuss this tomorrow.
