Subject: Re: [office-comment] Please standardize "Line Start ProhibitionRule"


Curious why you didn't mention the Characters Not Ending a Line (3.1.8 of the Note from the W3C)? (The correct reference for Character Not Starting a Line being 3.1.7). (I assume that is what is controlled by "EndLine" below but that is an assumption on my part.)

Not suggesting a position on either one but if we are going to get into character prohibition rules, seems like we ought to fix the issue so we don't have to come back to it.

Hope you are at the start of a great week!

If you explicitly specify which character is prohibited, the following

However, their semantics is not at all described in ODF 1.0.  It is not 
described in the current draft of ODF 1.2 either.  Please standardize
them.  Otherwise, ODF 1.2 does not contribute to interoperability 
of Japanese text.
