<P>Hello , <BR>Thanks for the reply, <BR>I will start familize my self reading
the links you sent. And I will make a developement enviroment. I think his will take about
3 or&nbsp;4 days.<BR></P>
<P>regarding your question:&nbsp; I think Arial font will be sutable for you. this
is windows font. I used it to generate font metrics file. I do not know IF its licence agree
with <FONT size=2>Apache license or not. <BR>What do you mean by "r-l font", I
think r-l is not a proberity of font.</FONT></P><FONT size=2></FONT></DIV>

&gt; I would like to offer my help in adding Right to left layout support<BR>&gt;
&gt; to fop. I think I can help because this is my job in the 1st place. I<BR>&gt;
&gt; work as a BIDI level 3 support in IBM Egypt.<BR>&gt; &gt; I can help
in doing the following:<BR>&gt; &gt; 1- Provide BIDI knowlage base.<BR>&gt;
&gt; 2- Perform Develpoment tasks<BR>&gt; &gt; 3- Perform testing tasks.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;Great,
all 3 forms of help will be appreciated.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;May I suggest
as starting points:<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;1) If you haven't done so get a copy
of the 
latest FOP version and<BR>&gt;establish yourself a development environment. Most
of the relevant<BR>&gt;information for this is either on the FOP website:<BR>&gt;http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/<BR>&gt;or
the FOP WIKI: http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/FrontPage and<BR>&gt;especially
Familiarize yourself with the XSL-FO spec<BR>&gt;(http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xsl-20011015/)
especially with the<BR>&gt;section on BIDI<BR>&gt;(http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xsl-20011015/slice5.html#section-N6720-Unicode-BIDI-Processing)<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;3)
There are some thoughts on BIDI and FOP documented on<BR>&gt;http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/FOPWritingModesAndBidiDesign.<BR>&gt;You
may want to check those.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;4) Make yourself familiar with
the FOP test system. 
back, ask questions, make suggestions, document ideas on a WIKI<BR>&gt;page....
Its largely up to you how to proceed. But this mailing list is<BR>&gt;your best
friend and don't hesitate to ask questions or for help.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;I
have a starting question for you: Is there a useable Arabic or Hebrew<BR>&gt;or
any other r-l font around we can use under the Apache license for<BR>&gt;testing?<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;Thank
you<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;Manuel<BR>&gt; &gt;<BR>&gt;
&gt; I gaind a lot of experiance in fop will using it to implement Arabic<BR>&gt;
&gt; right to left PDF.<BR>&gt; &gt; I also want to suggest adding the support
of adding implicit test to<BR>&gt; &gt; fop directly.<BR>&gt; &gt;
( Implicit test means characters as you type on the keyboard, for<BR>&gt; &gt;
Arabic/Hebrew additional 
proccessing needs to be done. I want fop do<BR>&gt; &gt; this by him self)<BR>&gt;
&gt;<BR>&gt; &gt; Wainting to hear from you.<BR>&gt; &gt;<BR>&gt;
&gt; Thanks,<BR>&gt; &gt; vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv<BR>&gt;
