W3C Makes Support for International Writing Modes an Official Web Standard

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) shared that CSS Writing Modes Level 3 is now an official web standard, which enables text on the web to be laid out horizontally or vertically and sets the direction in which lines are stacked. This allows multiple languages to be supported—horizontal right-to-left text such as Hebrew or Arabic as well as horizontal left-to-right text such as English or Hindi, along with vertically set text such as Japanese or Mongolian. It also allows for a mixture of horizontal and vertical text regions on the same page, among other features.

For more information, read the press release.
