Subject: New i18n resource for text layout work


There is now a page at the URL above that aims to track W3C i18n issues related to writing systems around the world. There are three types of issue:

1. questions for local experts about requirements for a particular feature

2. issues that have been raised against specs for support of a particular feature

3. browsers bugs raised relating to text layout issues

The issues are also labeled by script, so you could, for example, use the filters provided on the page to find just the spec issues related to Mongolian.

The hope is that this will support gap analysis work by helping us better track and manage needs and requests in the area of text layout for writing systems.

The document "International text layout and typography index" at https://w3c.github.io/typography/ points to the locations of existing information we have about requirements, organised by specific layout features. It now also contains links to the issues mentioned above (and to the type-samples repo) in order to help better link requirements and implementations of features relating to text layout.
