Any Hebrew or right to left languages ?
« on: December 15, 2003, 12:50:59 PM »
Aloha,

The title says it all.

Will there ne any built in support for languages which are written from right to left ?

I guess that localized versions are a much bigger task to achieve.

Amiga OS doesn't support right to left text.

The Hebrews and the rest of the Old World always wrote right to left. In fact each of their letters has a numerical value which you can use to...

...oh  never mind. Off subject. But no, modern Hebrew still reads the same.

I do have a small programme which adds right-to-left language support to the Amiga and I have Hebrew fonts if you are still looking for them.
