    Bert: have a few comment
    ... think it would be helpful to start with a couple lines
    about what ruby is, a couple lines and link to somewhere
    ... surprised to see some sentences that say "I..."
    ... noticed first image that explains 3 types of ruby is cut

    richard/addison: doesn't seem to happen to us?

    Bert: could be my fonts
    ... in intro mentions in tradition of hand-edited changes to
    make things work
    ... possible even if using these rules, allow designer to
    override certain settings by hand?

    richard: possible with CSS?

    Bert: what I'm hoping
    ... text is set on a grid with letters aligning vertical and
    horizontal, what happens then

    richard: it's a special kind of grid, jlreq explains

    <Bert> (The text being cut in figure 1 is indeed due to my
    browser's minimum font size setting.)

    RESOLUTION: close issue 190

    <xfq> [31]https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity/issues/192

      [31] https://github.com/w3c/i18n-activity/issues/192

    richard: understand that RDF folks want URLs to reference
    ... how would one approach the combinatorial problem of BCP47

    felix: provide URLs for subtags, here's a language tag, use a
    blank node to group URLs for subtags

    ... might be useful to see the ones we're individually
    responsible for first

    atsushi: putting names of WG member?
