Subject: Question about character sets


I am starting on a tutorial/procedure for adding a new code page.  I think I 
have everything to do this.

However, I do have one rather large question.   I am posting this to the dev 
group, in hopes that someone may have the answer to this, or be able to 
point to the right direction.

Ok, here it is.   So far, all encodings we have done, have been for left to 
right languages / charsets.  What will we need to do, to be able to handle 
right to left, alternating, or up down (I think there are up down) ?   Is 
our current method of dealing with strings going to suffice, or are the big 
changes needed?
