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 agreed to add the values "left" and "right" to the 
“fo:text-align" property. The values of this attributes are now "start", 
"end", "left", "right", "center" and "justify".

The TC further discussed the suggestions for paragraph alignment and 
writing mode based on the first character of a paragraph. A proposal for 
this is to add an attribute like "style:writing-mode-automatic" that 
takes values like "true" and "false". If the attribute's value is 
"true", applications are allowed to recalculate the writing mode of a 
paragraph based on its content whenever the content changes. The current 
writing mode still is specified by the "fo:writing-mode" attribute. By 
specifying a "fo:text-align='start'" attribute additionally, a change of 
the writing mode will automatically change the text alignment. For this 
reason, the "style:text-auto-align" attribute that has been introduced 
in the 21 August meeting is not required any longer. The TC agreed to 
vote on this proposal by e-mail.

The TC further discussed underlining and crossing out, especially the 
proposal to introduce a line style concept for underlining/crossing out. 
That is, to introduce style elements that specify all properties of a 
line like its type (dotted, solid, etc.) and its width and to reference 
these elements within text styles to specify the line style that should 
be used for a certain underlining/crossing out in the text. The TC 
unanimously agreed to move the discussion of such line styles into the 
second TC phase and to add a CSS3 based specification for 
underlining/crossing out that can be enhanced later on. Michael Brauer 
will create a proposal for this based on the already existing proposals. 
A voting about this proposal shall take place by e-mail.

The TC unanimously agreed to leave the specification of text, paragraph 
and graphical formatting properties unchanged with the exception of the 
changes and enhancements that have been agreed already and the two 
changes discussed above.

New Action Items
- Michael Brauer: Proposal/E-Mail voting for automatic writing mode
- Michael Brauer: Proposal/E-Mail voting for underlining/crossing-out.
