Great, all 3 forms of help will be appreciated.

May I suggest as starting points:

1) If you haven't done so get a copy of the latest FOP version and 
establish yourself a development environment. Most of the relevant 
information for this is either on the FOP website: 
or the FOP WIKI: http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/FrontPage and 
especially http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/FOPIDESetupGuide.

2) Familiarize yourself with the XSL-FO spec 
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xsl-20011015/) especially  with the 
section on BIDI 

3) There are some thoughts on BIDI and FOP documented on 
You may want to check those.

4) Make yourself familiar with the FOP test system. See: 

Come back, ask questions, make suggestions, document ideas on a WIKI 
page.... Its largely up to you how to proceed. But this mailing list is 
your best friend and don't hesitate to ask questions or for help.

I have a starting question for you: Is there a useable Arabic or Hebrew 
or any other r-l font around we can use under the Apache license for 

Thank you
