11.1. Internet Explorer Text-Formatting CSS Extensions

In additional to the large number of font and text formatting CSS properties, Microsoft has been adding a number of its own such properties since version 5 of Internet Explorer. Many of these properties are designed to aid with the layout of text meant to be read vertically, as many Asian languages are often displayed. Still others are there to deal with the finer points of justification, how exactly words should “break,” spacing out multilingual text and more. Microsoft has submitted many of these properties for consideration to the World Wide Web Consortium for inclusion in the official CSS3 specification.

This chapter is devoted wholly to looking at these extra text-layout CSS properties available in Internet Explorer. It also looks at any variations that may exist in the equivalent CSS3 modules for these properties.
