       BiDi is only half (or less) of the issue, isn't it? What about
       all the other layout issues such as diacritic stacking and
       positioning, required and discretionary ligature formation,
       indic reording and glyph shaping, etc. Do you have a
       cross-platform solution to that to include in XP?
