Mongolian Layout Task Force (mlreq)

This group explores gaps and requirements for support of languages using the traditional Mongolian script on the Web and in Digital Publications. Over a couple of years there have been lengthy discussions about the Mongolian encoding model on the list used by this group. Those discussions are now being driven by the Unicode Consortium.

A significant problem faced by the Web is that experts don't know how to tell the W3C what problems exist for support of their script or language, and the W3C doesn't know how to contact people who can help when questions arise. This network of experts should help to significantly reduce that problem.

Some experts go a step further, and contribute to a gap-analysis or requirements document, or to other documents produced by the group.

Topics for discussion are suggested by the gap-analysis template. This work supports the development of the language matrix which indicates hot-spots for language support. The focus is especially on typographic features for which information in English is hard to find, such as justification, letter-spacing, vertical text, text decoration, page layout, emphasis, etc. We want to ensure that we have captured local user needs in CSS, HTML, Timed Text, Web Payments, Web Publishing, and the many other specifications that the W3C produces.



Please use the GitHub issue list to report issues for language support, for discussions, and to send feedback about documents.


Rather than just 'Watch' this repository, it is best to subscribe to the public-i18n-mongolian mailing list. That list is notified once a day (in digest form) about not only changes to this repository, but also about other W3C Working Group issues related to the traditional Mongolian writing systems. (Please use github issues rather than the mailing list to send feedback.) Meeting minutes are also sent to public-i18n-mongolian.

You can find a list of open issues, including those from W3C Working Groups, on the Layout Tracker page. (That link applies an mongolian filter.)
