Hi Richard

<r12a> hi Lina

Punctuation

Mati: stick with Academy's recommendations

Richard: Oxford comma before 'and': in some cases it can be useful

In other situations it can be problematic

scribe: (in English)

Richard: we rather focus on style requirements not linguistics

Some aspects might still be relevant

Such as not putting period on numbering in separate line

Richard: even though not well-defined, some ideas:
Approaches to choosing topics

<r12a> Approaches to choosing topics

<r12a> http://w3c.github.io/i18n-discuss/notes/language-matrix.html


E.g. Amharic: 

http://w3c.github.io/typography/gap-analysis/ethi


Richard: what doesn't work should be highest priority in the requirements
... It's useful information to give as a short introduction on how to use 
comma, period, etc.

Mati: who's the audience?

Richard: ppl creating techlogy, who need to see whether they need to 
introduce Hebrew specifics, also browser developers

Mati: audience is not authors

Richard: yes

<r12a> John said "I said to him "Watch out!" quietly".

Numbering

Using letters for numbering

<r12a> http://w3c.github.io/predefined-counter-styles/#hebrew-styles


Mati: different from English, because in Hebrew one can express much 
larger numbers

greater numbers

In Hebrew is more common like used in Hebrew calendar (not European digits 
but Hebrew numbers)

Mati: year, day in everyday usage in calendar

<r12a> 2017 ב׳יז 

תשע״ז

5777

Richard: makes sense to quote CSS counter styles rules in the reqs 
document

Mati: need to distribute some home work

Mati will provide content on Hebrew numbers

Lina will cover punctuation

target date: in 2 weeks
