Subject: which scripts are written vertically
There's a Unicode FAQ on the Unicode website:
The second question is
"Which scripts are written vertically?"
But the answer given does not answer the question. The only script
it lists explicitly is Mongolian; the rest of the text is just some
background information on what vertical layout might entail.
I would actually like to have a definitive answer to this question. :)
Can the unnamed person responsible for this FAQ please update it?
The best I've been able to come up with so far is:
Egyp Egyptian Hieroglyphs
Hrkt Hiragana / Katakana
Phag Phags Pa
(All of which are top-to-bottom, except maybe Ogham, for which I've
received conflicting information.)
But I am not sure that this list is complete.
