    split out Tibetan LR

    <r12a> [23]http://w3c.github.io/tlreq/

      [23] http://w3c.github.io/tlreq/

    richard: rewritten that document
    ... waiting for a chinese translation
    ... can do fwpd then

    ruchard: ruby
    ... there's some discussion between implementers and anne vk
    ... implementation of items such as rb and rbc
    ... vary across browsers
    ... whatwg didn't help that much
    ... convergence on html5 definition
    ... sufficient convergence for webvtt?

    richard: bidi
    ... continuing to talk to implementers about @dir isolation
    ... talked to msft
    ... talked to miles from safari
    ... koji says chrome will implement if tests exist and other
    browsers do
    ... just submitted some tests to the ttwf suite
    ... anyone to review?
    ... key item is that bidi expert needed to review

    addison: was that your email to winter?

    richard: yes
    ... some tests for rli control and its friends
    ... anyyone could do it
    ... look up how reviews are done?


    richard: wiating for david to suggest repo name

    <scribe> ACTION: richard: follow up with David S. to get name
    for repo and set up said repo [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-482 - Follow up with david s. to get
    name for repo and set up said repo [on Richard Ishida - due

Encoding and Encoding Tests



    richard: created a whole bunch more tests



    richard: see above
    ... big5, euc-jp, euc-kr
    ... results
    ... two more to do
    ... ISO-2022
    ... and gb18030
    ... 18030 has a gbk flag
    ... just write two tests??
    ... have tests for encoding/decoding that test the repertoires
    ... what became clear to me was "big5" wasn't what was formally
    ... only those codepoints handled by web browsers
    ... are some big differences
    ... japanese euc
    ... can only encode half of the characters you can decode

    jis 0208 and jis 0212

    scribe: a "good first step" to get browsers doing the same

    richard: need tests to tests for what happens when things go

    jck: kermit did this awhile ago... doyou know frank dacruz

    talk about encoding spec in two weeks

WebVTT Status

    richard: went through the issues
    ... at tpac with simon
    ... and again this week
    ... here's the link


      [27] http://www.w3.org/International/reviews/openissues/#webvtt1

    richard: pulled in some (t) issues that they came up with
    ... and the (c) issues I think we can close

    <r12a> [28]http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/436

      [28] http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/436

    <scribe> ACTION: addison: review close marked webvtt issues and
    close if satisfied [recorded in

    <trackbot> Created ACTION-483 - Review close marked webvtt
    issues and close if satisfied [on Addison Phillips - due

    richard: discussion of ruby model incomplete
    ... rb wanted?
    ... simon mentioned that whatwg doesn't have it
    ... had a look and don't think it's an issue for rb
    ... understand not doing rtc or rbrbrbrtrtrt model

    addison: I agree with pushing back


    <r12a> [30]https://github.com/w3c/presentation-api/issues/218

      [30] https://github.com/w3c/presentation-api/issues/218

    richard: some concern because different encodings
    ... might look weird
    ... problem might be ideographic characters across languages
    ... talked last week, wrote back
    ... not ideal presentation
    ... associate language with content when sent
    ... and that can be used to present
    ... another person said use accept-language
    ... but that's really just for saying what you prefer
    ... not a mechanism for addressing font selection and such
    ... wrong tool for the job

    addison: it's a lot more work to do language negotation using
    a-l and such
    ... when what we're really doing is allowing a device to send
    the language for a given string
    ... so that it can be displayed as intended
    ... that's really much simpler


    addison: closed almost all open issues
    ... take a look
