As far as I can tell, [css-writing-modes] does not say anything about what the writing mode of a run of tate-chuu-yoko is. If thatís considered horizontal, it would be good to make that explicit, and if thatís considered vertical, we either need a new term to refer to from [css3-ui], or we need to single out this case.

It is explicit enough to know what is happening in a combined text area, but I donít think it gives me a word which means ďhorizontal in a horizontal writing mode and in a text-combine area inside a vertical writing mode, and vertical in other areas of a vertical writing modeĒ.

What I am looking for is not an explanation of the behaviour (which we have), but vocabulary to refer to it.
