      [23] https://www.w3.org/International/tests/#css3-text-decor

    richard: now have two sets of tests for test decoration
    ... a couple need some word tweaking
    ... line below "a bit lower" hard to test
    ... tests now there focused on i18n stuff
    ... a few exploratory tests
    ... note in spec says JP different from ZH
    ... put some exploratory for what I think should happen to
    ... writing tests takes time
    ... figure out how to write more efficiently
    ... took time to create a system to generate tests
    ... first fruit of that effort
    ... assertions still use same text as tests, etc.

    fantasai: just switched to using WPT repo

    richard: contribute our tests to platform
    ... this is a mechanism for how I create the files

    fantasai: as far as assertion and instructions
    ... usually quite different
    ... text decoration sometimes have identical text for both
    ... pass condition can be more abstract, not useful assertion

    richard stuck in properties and values automatically

    scribe: instructions are "test passes if"
    ... and then may add something like "this is what happense for
    e.g. Japanese chars"
    ... not perfect but okay maybe?

    <fantasai> CSSWG is meeting in Tokyo mid-April :)

HTML WG wants to close issue 470




      [26] https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity/issues/164

    okay by me

String in WHATWG

Content Model for Ruby Markup?

    richard: make a work item?
    ... ttml is defining how ruby should work in their spec
    ... only slightly differently than others
    ... not the syntax, but the objects and how they relate
    ... we have a content model in ruby annotation spec
    ... have one in html
    ... and css ruby spec, which expects some stuff like tabular
    ... same ?? with ITS and webvtt
    ... would be nice to produce a document that says what elements
    you need and relationship?

    addison: new version of ruby annotation spec??

    richard: not sure

    fantasai: happy to review

Can we publish Approaches to full justification

    <najib> Yes



    richard: publish as an article
    ... no objections?

    najib: put a comment about tatweel
    ... it gives a better result
    ... gave some explanation
    ... tatweel is only possible for simple fonts
    ... not really an implementation of kashida

    addison: changes required?

    najib: no, just confirming what richard wrote
    ... mentioned this in ALReq
