The css3-text module is going nowhere fast, and it's hanging-punctuation declaration is so ill-defined that I can't even figure out what the values mean.

Since WebKit is the typographical tiger of the web world, we should come up with something awesome that works for all scripts and locales, which we can submit to the CSS WG.

Agree 100%.  I've wanted this feature for a while (even if it's just opt-in through a new property).

Any news on this? I checked W3C's specifications and it seems like they don't know how to implement it in a code either. But this would be so useful for any web designer, since, let's admit it, punctuation within the content box at the start of a paragraph really does suck. We need Webkit to lead the way on this, as you guys often do! :)

Just wanted to bring this up since the last post on this feature request goes back to 2008.
