Subject Re: direction="rtl" not available in fop-1.0?
Date Thu, 19 Aug 2010 04:17:00 GMT
Work is underway to add full support for complex scripts, including
bidirectional writing, to FOP. A preliminary patch was posted at the
following, however, please note that it is preliminary, incomplete, and has
known issues. I expect this work will be fully completed within a few months
and you shall then have full support for Arabic, Hebrew, Syriac, and other
bidirectional scripts.


I will post further information on this users list when the work is complete
and integrated into the FOP 1.1dev trunk.
