Re: Bidirectional Bugs in hebrew

Hello Uri,
The problem is not due to Pango.

I see it also in the FriBidi package (version 0.1.14) when it works with
my own software.

I am not sure of this, but it seems to be according to the Unicode
bidirectionality algorithm.

The rationale behind the algorithm:  to make it possible to type negative
numbers in "natural" order.  If it were not for this "problem", it would
have been awkward to type negative numbers in bidirectional text.
