No webcast, but our hosts will try to record this talk and post it to YouTube within a few weeks.
Bidi in Three Acts
An introduction to the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm and how it works, followed by a tutorial on its application in HTML4 and CSS2 documents, and an exploration of the new isolation and auto-detection features being introduced in HTML5, CSS3, and Unicode 6.3 that will make mixed-directional multilingual documents easier to auto-generate and author. You'll learn the fundamentals of bidirectional text as well as tips and techniques for handling user-generated content and supporting website translations into both left-to-right and right-to-left languages.
Elika J. Etemad, a.k.a. fantasai, is a longtime contributor to the Mozilla Project and an active member of the W3C CSS Working Group, where she accidentally specialized in internationalization. She co-edits many CSS specifications, including those related to bidi, vertical text, and international typesetting features.

The Twitter hashtag for IMUG events is #IMUG408, honoring Silicon Valley's main area code. Yes, we'll be in 650 this month, which used to be 415, at the Googleplex, which used to be SGI. It's still 408! :-) Follow @i18n_mug: http://twitter.com/i18n_mug
