bidi in WebVTT

    richard: discussing best way to do it
    ... declarative approach (put base direction at top of doc)
    ... then have a way to override
    ... problem is that paragraphs or lines hard to see how to
    apply a different direction
    ... only way to do controls
    ... use first strong heuristics
    ... what confused about is how would work for paras inside a
    ... only look at first character
    ... spec wasn't clear about what happens
    ... two ways to determine base direction
    ... one for cue itself
    ... suc has text-align start
    ... other is on a paragraph basis
    ... use first character to dtermine direction of cue as a box
    ... not clear in spec or not said
    ... use first char of each line/para to determine direction
    ... also going to make short summaries of algorithms
    ... additional examples so you can get an idea of webvtt is
    ... and some other things
    ... adding railroad diagrams

Data on the Web BP



    felix: reviewing data on the web bp
    ... see email above
    ... far from defining technology
    ... used to define requirements for people to produce or
    consume data on the Web
    ... not specific to a format
    ... context is used for produrement
    ... used to define input for procurement
    ... have more prominent mention of language related issues
    ... needs metadata
    ... locale (date, time, etc.)
    ... metadata in multiple languages
    ... some opportunity to mention multilingual metadata
    ... sometimes too labor intensive to publish
    ... enhancement of data/enrichment
    ... *very* high level comments


      [26] http://www.w3.org/International/reviews/review-instructions

    richard: review the review instructions


    richard: on webvtt
    ... need to start closing
