    Yesterday the W3C published an updated copy of the CSS Text Level 3
    specification as a Working Draft. This defines many typographic
    features that will soon make their way into a Web browser near you!

    This module covers, among other things,
       * White space processing
       * Line breaking
       * Justification
       * Text decoration

    The latest revision in particular attempts to classify the scripts
    in Unicode according to their typographic behavior. Unfortunately
    while I am familiar with more scripts than the average person, I am
    unfamiliar with most of them. Any suggestions for corrections and
    additions would be thus much appreciated.

    The module is derived from some early CSS Internationalization drafts,
    and one of its primary goals is to provide key features needed to
    correctly typeset languages from around the world. We welcome your
    comments and questions on the draft. Input from the Indic, Southeast
    Asian, and Arabic script communities so far has been noticeably missing
    and would be especially appreciated.

    The best way to send feedback is to post to the archived mailing list
    www-style@w3.org: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/
    with '[css3-text]' and a summary of your comment in the subject line.
    But, since this list is also archived, I will also try to follow any
    such tagged discussions here as well. :)

    For those of you who want to follow the latest-latest modifications,
    the unofficial editor's draft is here:
