Typesetting East Asian languages on the web

A presentation at CSS-Minsk-JS Conference in in Minsk, Belarus by Chen Hui Jing

East Asian languages are traditionally typeset vertically, and modern CSS gives us the means to do that reasonably well on the web today without too much effort.

This talk will cover the typesetting of East Asian languages as well as laying them out on the web, and how some of these techniques can be used for horizontal languages as well.
