    richard: talked to shervin and he'll try to produce something
    for arabic (gap review)

    bert: looking at dutch, not finished yet
    ... will send

    richard: when you get to paged media stuff
    ... are there i18n features that are not supported. lots of
    features not supported
    ... but we're only considering the i18n ones
    ... things such as making page turn direction in arabic
    ... the ij thing might be one, it's unicode related
    ... maybe important to consider

Review pending and close items




      [29] https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity/issues/473

    richard: maybe too late
    ... but don't like the word justify here
    ... this is about aligning or arranging
    ... I wish to tilt at this windmill please?

    addison: agree

    david: use of justify is unjustifiable

    bert: problem css knows about, but hasn't come to satifying
    ... words are internally consistent, but words overloaded
    ... haven't found anything better, variations of 'align' are
    equally obscure

    richard: suggesting 'arrange', notice that powerpoint uses the
    ... question is whether CSS Grid went out and use justify?

    bert: not sure if all of them


      [30] https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity/issues/474

    richard: asking for a brief summary of what happens in simple

    addison: is that really an i18n comment?

    richard: well, has to do with which baseline

    bert: thought there use to be illustrations?

    richard: still exist in another spec
    ... didn't manage to make that connect to what they say here

    (possibly line module??)

    (no objections)


      [31] https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity/issues/396

    richard: matches items to a list
    ... matches capital and lowercase in list
    ... should we do normalization too?


      [32] http://w3c.github.io/charmod-norm/#handlingCaseFolding

    addison: turkish for example

    andrew: vietnamese input methods may require normalization
    ... user may not be inputting the same string
    ... for the same word

    richard: really useful feature though
    ... use in uniview

    jck: gray area between identifier case and free text case

    addison: if we don't say anything, the default implementation
    will be ascii friendly and break down from there


      [33] https://github.com/w3c/string-search

    jck: "don't charge naively ahead"

    david: a rider on that is to say "before you try anything, try

    jck: agree

    addison: wouldn't apply a K because it damages too much

    david: should say bahave "as if" NFC
    ... use as-if to avoid requiring the actual normalization

    addison: case fold still a thing
    ... written things like this
    ... fold wide/narrow? fold kana?
    ... "opened a nest of snakes"

    bert: found in an editor that suggests options, really annoying
    ... what does the author mean by this, are these specific
    ... up to browser to be smart about it

    addison: spec could allow implementations to compete on this

    richard: sounds really useful but opened a nest of snakes

    david: take into account user's locale

    addison: or page language content

    richard: and give examples
    ... will draft comment and submit it


      [34] https://github.com/w3c/string-search


      [35] https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity/issues/159

    richard: they say no modifiers but examples are all uppercase

    (discussion of various things such as numbers on some
    keyboards, some syllabaries, etc.)

    richard: so what does "modifier" mean?

    andrew: technically includes shift

    jck: needs to be very clear what they are talking about

    andrew: defined as single unicode code point
    ... but keyboards aren't limited that way

    addison: didn't we have this issue?

    richard: yes, steve raised this before

    steve: can't remember which spec, but yes
    ... have to look

    richard: chaals involved in discuss?

    okay to send

    richard: owl-time all need to be closed?

    addison: will look at and close

    richard: will issue a new list for next week
