Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1518) fo:directioninteraction with style:writing-mode(-automatic)

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1518?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15784#action_15784 ] 

Oliver-Rainer Wittmann commented on OFFICE-1518:

feedback from my colleague Ingrid Halama, responsible for the chart application in OpenOffice.org:
The attribute style:direction is used to force a not natural direction for a word. The attribute is not used to cope with the different needs for different languages but to allow to use the given space in a document more effective.

An example:
In case of style:writing-mode="lr-tb" and style:direction="ttb"
the single character is orientated left to right as indicated by style:writing-mode but the text is forced to be written from top to bottom differing from the given writing-mode.

So the attribute style:direction is a further modification upon attribute style:writing-mode and not superceded by it. 

Eike is out-of-office until the end of this week. I think we should wait for his feedback, too.

> The draft fails to clarify how fo-direction (possible values ltr & ttb) is supposed to interact with style:writing-mode (lr-tb, rl-tb, tb-rl, tb-lr, lr, rl, tb
> or page) and style:writing-mode-automatic.
> It seems to me that fo:direction is superceded by style:writing-mode
