> Hallo SiqinBilige,

Thank you for your advise.
You are right, using "-webkit-text-orientation: sideways-right;" can display Traditional Mongolian Vertical way on Webkit like browsers.
But it is not good solution for the writing-mode:vertica-lr.
We are not only consider Traditional Mongolian only document.
We are must consider Traditional Mongolian mixed with other language document too. such as with CJK and Other symbols used in Traditional Mongolian document.

We believe you can understand our considering, after carefully look over screenshots below.

1. On Windows IE, correct CJK and symbols layout.

2. On Windows Chrome, not correct CJK and symbols layout. (I can not download latest version of Webkit for windows)

3. On Windows Chrome (with "-webkit-text-orientation: sideways-right;"), not correct CJK and symbols layout.

4. On Mac OS Webkit, correct CJK and symbols layout.

5. On Mac OS Webkit (with "-webkit-text-orientation: sideways-right;"), not correct CJK and symbols layout.

It is what we are struggling here to fix this bug or want to fixed by some one else first.

> I have tested with Chrome and OperaNext on Mac. Both browsers can shape the Mongolian correctly (there is also another bug with 0x202F, see: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=155334).
There is no bug about 0x202F.
You can confirm it look over the last line of screenshots.

But, there is a lot of other bugs about Traditional Mongolian(-webkit-writing-mode: vertical-lr;) forms in Webkit.
