Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Archive/A vertical reading-mode for Classical Chinese.

copy Duplicate proposal of 2017 Community Wishlist Survey/Miscellaneous/Vertical writing support

  • Problem: Classical Chinese ๐Ÿ› Wikipedia is currently written horizontally reading from left-to-right, and then up-to-down, this isn't how any actual Classical Chinese text is written, and there certainly is the technical capability to make this script written in โ€œthe correct orderโ€.
  • Who would benefit: People who get irritated by the fact that Classical Chinese Wikipedia ๐Ÿ› isn't written like actual Classical Chinese texts. ๐Ÿง
  • Proposed solution: Create an optional mode for the Classical Chinese Wikipedia ๐Ÿ› to be read in the traditional-style of vertical writing with characters going from up-to-down, and then from right-to-left. I think ๐Ÿค” that this should also be applied to mentions of Latin script, Cyrillic script, Greek script, Devanagari script, Etc. included within the Classical Chinese Wikipedia ๐Ÿ›.
