For some time, we've had a ticket outstanding for the creation of a new
section of the Guidelines giving useful advice on encoding text
(Right-to-left versus left-to-right, vertical versus horizontal, etc.)
I'm putting together a working group to push forward with this, and I'd
be interested in hearing from anyone with specific expertise in this
area, either with specific languages and scripts, or more generally. I'd
also be interested to receive any suggestions for good existing
documentation in this area, especially emanating from standards bodies
or authoritative sources.
Could anyone who is interested please contact me directly, or post
comments or suggestions on the ticket?
I'm sending this to TEI-L, but also emailing some people we think might
have a strong interest in this directly.
