Also I can not use Katoob text editor. I use Parsix GNU/Linux distribution and Katoob is not in Parsix. For more information about Parsix GNU/Linux distribution please see Parsix site at

I just tried out the Parsix LiveCD--that's a cool distro!

Katoob isn't part of the distribution, but you can install it from Add/Remove Software. However, it may not do much for you--it offers some keyboard emulations, but since Parsix has that USA/Iran toggle button on the panel, you can already switch keyboards instantly. I didn't see anything else to distinguish it, in a very brief test-drive.

So the issue seems to be that, as long as you stay in a Gnomish (Gtk) world (Balsa, Gedit, vim, etc.), you can mix Persian and Ascii text and it gets displayed the way you intend, but if you compose mail in Balsa and send it to a webmail client it gets mangled. Is that right?

Have you looked at GMail? It offers rtl composing in Arabic and Hebrew <URL:>, apparently both in plain text and in rich-text. Again, I don't have an account, so I can't test it. It would be interesting to see how a Balsa-composed text/plain message with mixed bidi text is displayed.
