Length Limits in Specdev


      [23] https://github.com/w3c/bp-i18n-specdev

    richard: first a pull request

    <r12a> [24]https://github.com/r12a/bp-i18n-specdev/

      [24] https://github.com/r12a/bp-i18n-specdev/







    richard: can we accept this PR?

    addison: I think so

    richard: in definitions-characters
    ... need to add a new section
    ... will send in due course

    <r12a> [28]https://github.com/w3c/bp-i18n-specdev/issues/28

      [28] https://github.com/w3c/bp-i18n-specdev/issues/28



    <David> R12a: The issues are numbered... The 3rd one conflates
    grapheme and user-perceived character

    <David> Addison: Was written quickly and the variation between
    terms is not often relevant.

    <David> R12a: Will write more. Glyph and user percieved
    grapheme is the same to a viewer.

    <David> Addison: The challenge is to introduce extended
    grapheme cluster concept, in the article.

    <David> R12a: will not define Grapheme. Glyph is used

    <David> R12a: Different glyphs can represent the same user
    perceived character

    <David> ... there may be multiple glyphs (defined shape in
    font) to multiple graphemes

    <David> Addison: compressing Grapheme cluster to grapheme, in
    order to simplify for the readed.

    <David> Addison: There is a progression from elements to
    displayed characters

    <David> R12a: Section 5. Tautology in describing user perceived

    <David> Addison: Yes, but there is more needed to clarify

    <David> R12a: Multiple glyphs may represent a single user
    perceived character

    <David> Addison: Moving from theoretical to visuals perceived.

    <David> R12a: Need to mention CSS "Typographic character unit"
    it is indivisible for operations on the text.

    <r12a> It is standard to backwards delete codepoints, but to
    forward delete grapheme clusters.

    <David> R12a: This needs to be tied to the other terms

    <David> R12a: number 7

    <David> Addison: not quite correct that you can't cursor into
    grapheme clusters.

    <David> R12a: Complex scripts do require partial replacement
    inside clusters for syllables on errors.

    <David> R12a: would like to move back one and delete, then
    replace inside the character

    <David> Addison: Not appropriate for emoji and some selection

    <David> ... might work better with Typographic character unit
    instead of grapheme cluster

    <David> R12a: section 8

    <David> Addison: this is area is full of jargon that make it
    difficult for most people to understand

    <David> ... We need to take care to repurpose grapheme, and
    this is a specification so needs precision

    <David> ... TPU is not completely clear

    <David> stpeter: agree with R12a's target audience

    <David> Addison: We need to refine the set to the required
    usage, only, rather than fully detailed as e.g. CSS require



    <David> Addison: Is really working with the truncation issue
    and these terms need to be used meaningfully.

    <David> R12a: Will rewrite the article and check with Addison.

    <David> Addison: agreed

    <David> Addison: We need to choose script for examples. In
    example 5: to demonstrate that length limits

    <David> Addison: Using byte length limits decrease the number
    of available characters as you go up in unicode code-points

    <David> Addison: Will refine Cyrilic/Chinese script examples

    <David> ... Emoji are the best 4 byte example

    <David> R12a: complex scripts with combining characters reduce
    the size from bytes radically


      [31] http://w3c.github.io/charmod-norm/

    <David> Addison: Has done edits on charmod

    <David> ...new case folding and terminology content
