Guidelines of a Logical UI for Editing BiDi texts


Matitiahu Allouche of IBM Israel <matial il ibm com> has kindly sent
me the draft israeli standard document on the subject:

   Guidelines of a Logical User Interface for Editing Bidirectional Text

I have put his document on my web site at:

Mati would be very interested in getting feedback that may affect the
standards draft (it has not been passed yet). 

But it is also interesting to note how the BiDi support in gtk matches
the description of the draft standard. It appears that the major obstacle
is one that has been discussed in this list in the past. Namely the
automatic switching of the keyboard layout as a result of motion of the
cursor over the different directional runs of the text.
