[css-text-3] Language Tagging, writing systems, and typographic conventions

Hi i18nwg,
I've just committed
which fixes
by adding some additional information and warnings about language-specific
typographic effects and the need to correctly language-tag (and in some cases,
script-tag) content. The resulting spec prose is in two sections:

   https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-3/#languages (intro)
   https://drafts.csswg.org/css-text-3/#script-tagging (appendix)

The goal of these sections are twofold:

   * Make authors and implementors aware of the need to use language tags
     to solicit correct language-specific typographic behavior from the UA.

   * Ensure that script tags are used and interpreted correctly when a
     document is written in an atypical language + writing system combination.

Please let me know if the text needs additional tweaking.
