Outline

The concept of being able to choose between a horizontal and a vertical layout is one that is completely normal and widely used in Japan, but not so much in other regions. At the moment, expression of ideas on the web is almost always done horizontally, but if the Japanese expertise of using vertical text were to be used more widely and freely along with the currently used horizontal text, freedom of expression of all web-page layouts would greatly increase. With this goal in mind, Study Group on Text Layout for Next-Generation Web Browsers now pushes for the globalization of the vertical text layout and its use in a variety of web content.
