Chinese Text Layout task force (clreq) | 中文排版需求

This group allows a network of experts to share information about gaps and requirements for support of Simplified and Traditional Chinese on the Web and in eBooks.


It aims to address the problem that experts often don't know how to tell the W3C what problems exist for support of their script on the Web, and the W3C often doesn't know how to contact people who can help when questions arise.

很多语言专家往往不知道如何告诉 W3C 在网页上支持自己语言、文种;而 W3C 也不知道如何联系到能回答问题的人,本小组的目标就是在于解决这种情况。

Some experts go a step further, and contribute to a gap-analysis or requirements document.


Topics for discussion are suggested by the gap-analysis template. This work feeds into the language matrix which gives an overview of languages needing attention. You can find a list of open issues, including those from W3C Working Groups, on the Layout Tracker page. (That link applies a



The focus is especially on typographic features for which information in English is typically 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.

讨论特别关注于一些用英文资料难以找到的字体排印特性,比如对齐方式、字距、竖排、文本装饰、排版、强调方式等等。我们希望保证我们要能覆盖用户在 CSS、HTML、时间轴文本、网页支付、网页出版等的需要,以及其他 W3C 出台的规范。

Note: The public-i18n-cjk mailing list is used to send notification digests & meeting minutes. It is not for technical discussion.

注意:public-i18n-cjk 邮件列表用于发送通知摘要和会议记录,不用于技术讨论。

You may raise issues in Chinese, however any substantive discussions should be summarised in English at some point, so that non-Chinese speakers can follow the rationale and contribute comments.

To just follow the work: Rather than 'Watch' this repository, subscribe to the public-i18n-cjk mailing list. That list is notified (no more than once a day, and in digest form), about changes to issues in this repository, but also about other W3C Working Group issues related to the Japanese, Chinese, & Korean writing systems.

如果只是关注小组工作:相比于“Watch”此仓库,订阅 public-i18n-cjk 邮件列表会更好。该列表每天以摘要形式通知此仓库的活动以及其他 W3C 工作组中与中日韩书写系统相关的问题。
