Hi Richard and all.

Happy new year to all of you.
I had a extremely busiest year in 2016. 
We had to concentrate on our one big project related on Mongolian Digital Publishing in last year. 
After completed our heaviest project task, I can come to our discussion forum to commit our contribution regularly now.

According to your question on 
> 1. Are full width Latin characters needed for Mongolian?
Yes. we need for some irregular case, for example, in the head of line as a sequence character for the paragraph, we use full width Latin characters in Mongolian.

>2. Is it common to have upright characters in vertically set Mongolian?
Yes. we use it as upright characters in vertically in Mongolian. Sometime, we use Chinese character as well as all of the other vertical punctuation in Mongolian.
Like the digitals, circled digitals, alphabets, Latins and other punctuations.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Jirimutu

Subject: Fullwidth/upright vertical characters in Mongolian

dear Mongolian experts,

I'm looking for your advice. I'm planning to soon publish an article for wide review, but i have a couple of specific questions about Mongolian that first needs an answer, if possible.

The article is
Styling vertical Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Mongolian text https://w3c.github.io/i18n-drafts/articles/vertical-text.en

The specific questions are:

1. Are fullwidth Latin characters needed for Mongolian?

2. Is it common to have upright characters in vertically set Mongolian?

see https://w3c.github.io/i18n-drafts/articles/vertical-text.en#upright
for more context.

I'd be very grateful if you could let me know your opinion.

many thanks,
ri
