Discussion of Work Package 5.3 Style Properties
The TC continued the discussed of text formatting properties as described in section 3.10 of the OpenOffice.org XML specification.

The TC briefly discussed Michael's proposal for underlining. The issue was deferred to the Sept. 22nd meeting, when Michael will have returned.

The TC discussed introduction of an over-lining attribute which would work just as underlining does, except above the text. Since no supporting product and no compelling use case was found, the TC decided to not include overlining at this point in time.

The TC discussed Michael's proposal for a simplified *-asian and *-complex attribute processing. The proposal was accepted unanimously.

The TC discussed the issue of style:text-background-color, which can be replaced by the background-color attribute since paragraph and character properties are now kept in separate elements. The TC unanimously agreed to remove style:text-background-color. 

The TC discussed David's suggestions for paragraph alignment dependent on the first character in a paragraph. The discussion revealed that instead alignment should probably be enhanced with an 'automatic' value and the writing mode could be made dependent on the first letter. The 'automatic' alignment would align a paragraph left or right, depending on the writing mode. No agreement was reached, so this will be discussed in next week's meeting.
