Iâm trying to figure out what is the correct way to render traditional
Mongolian text in upright text-orientation.
The Writing Modes 3 spec says: âTypographic character units from vertical
scripts are typeset with their intrinsic orientationâ .
Mongolian is listed as a vertical script with a vertical intrinsic
direction (ttb) .
Hereâs my test case: https://jsfiddle.net/9o1wazj2
I tried it in Chrome55 and Firefox50 on Mac/Windows10 (on Mac 10.12, the
default font didnât display any text orientation correctly, so I had to
install the Mongolian White font ).
The mixed and sideways Mongolian texts are rendered correctly, but the
upright text isnât. Does it mean that browsers are typesetting Mongolian
upright text wrong?
