    koji: UTR#50 and writing mode
    ... preparing data files which is a snapshot of utr50


      [13] http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-writing-modes/#vertical-orientations

    koji: now in ed
    ... will have 1 or 2 more WD before last call
    ... please provide feedback
    ... attended subgroup of UTC
    ... two telecons
    ... told them about things we expected
    ... which should go in next draft
    ... but publishers need something now that is stable
    ... very helpful if someone can check out the datafiles in
    draft, especially for CJK important code points



    richard: link to final report on MLWeb project

    ... finished at end of March

    richard: but final review was last friday
    ... reached "exceeded expectatoins" score
    ... which is highest
    ... will continue workshops in ML Web LT project
    ... which ends in 2014
    ... need to look at funding models

Web Notifications


      [15] http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/notifications/raw-file/tip/Overview.html

    Norbert: raised issue 161
    ... no way to specify the language
    ... safe to say what the language is?
    ... does the User Agent know?
    ... possibility of multiple items, each tagged with a language
    ... so the user agent can select
    ... which one to display

    1. The presence of 'direction' each attribute (title, body) is
    nice to see, but it would be good if there were also a "lang"
    attribute for each. Content language is used to influence the
    display of Notifications (line wrapping, font selection, etc.).
    The language attribute should be a String containing a BCP 47
    language tag.

    2. (Section 5). It's a little odd that title is converted to
    Unicode before setting the direction, while body has its
    direction set first. Can those be made consistent?

    3. (Section 6). The Unicode Bidrectional Algorithm should be
    referenced directly here. As written, it's hard to understand
    unless one is already familiar with the concepts. Rules from
    UAX#9 are referenced by name here, so there should be an
    explicit reference to it. Note that such a reference is
    included in the references section already.

    appears to be there now

      [17] http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/notifications/shortlog

    4. (Section 7.2). Should normalization play a role in comparing
    'tag' values?

    think we are coming to conclusion that answer is 'no'

    <scribe> ACTION: addison: send Web Notifications comments
    [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-134 - Send Web Notifications comments
    [on Addison Phillips - due 2012-07-04].

Ruby Document


      [19] http://www.w3.org/International/docs/ruby/editme.html


      [20] http://www.w3.org/International/docs/ruby/editme.html

    richard: not a finished item, but question is: "can I publish a
    new public WD"

    koji: think it's good to go public

    richard: add something about double-<rt>?

    koji: not sure if current spec can read this way

    Norbert: when reading...
    ... elements not defined, e.g. <rp> I *think* means parens,

    richard: don't hvae a link to HTML5 sections that describe
    ruby, etc.
    ... document assumes some familiarity with Ruby and HTML5 ruby
    ... and add links/refs

    Norbert: not aware that CSS and HTML can generate DOM elements
    when parsing
    ... anonymous boxes

    richard: starting to develop an opinion... maybe not change
    ... but might change how markup behaves
    ... might not need <rb> as long as can get anonymous box

    norbert: multiple <rb> followed by multiple <rt>?

    richard: requires singificant reengineering?
    ... can do nested ruby now
    ... and almost sort of works

    Norbert: no model where can get a "yes" everywhere in table in

    koji: fantasai and I think jukugo is a style rather than markup
    ... haven't got time right now to work on ruby styling just now
    ... but document describes issues and shows possible approaches

    norbert: might be good to have preferred direction mentioned
    somewhere, if there is one?

    richard: want to be neutral now?

    <scribe> chair: who supports publishing as a FPWD?

    <DClarke> +1

    koji: yes

    andrew: yes

    <r12a> yes

    addison: yes

    norbert: yes
