Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OFFICE-4078) The technical term "baseline" is not defined.

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4078?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=77454#comment-77454 ] 

Patrick Durusau commented on OFFICE-4078:

I wonder about aligning with PANOSE. As Francis points out, it is an older standard and one wonders how many font manufacturers rely on it and not the developing CSS Writing Modes material?

Last December a W3C Recommendation was issued: CSS Writing Modes Level 3,Â[https://www.w3.org/TR/2019/REC-css-writing-modes-3-20191210/], which if carefully re-used in a future version of ODF, perhaps would improve the handling of complex languages and interoperability as well.Â

Any TC members with contacts among font manufacturers?Â

> There are several places were the term "baseline" is used, but it is nowhere defined. Especially for non-latin scripts a definition is needed. But even for latin scripts such definition is not simple. The spec should clearly say which line has to be used.
> For to imagine the complexity have a look at [https://www.w3.org/TR/css-inline-3/#css-metrics]
> No proposal yet.
