The Unicode Consortium is pleased to announce the first published
version of UTR #50, Unicode Vertical Text Layout. Up until now, vertical
text layout has been challenging for implementers due to the somewhat
ambiguous nature of character orientation, and often relied on
information that is buried deep within font formats. This Unicode
Technical Report lays the groundwork for a non-ambiguous vertical text
layout model that can serve a broad range of environments. Details can
be found at http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr50/ .
