    Thanks for the clarification. This is most of what I wanted to hear. I
    can now unreservedly withdraw my negative comments with apologies.

    It would have been nicer still to hear a promise of support for Hebrew,
    Arabic, Indic and SE Asian scripts etc. But I am aware that this is also
    a much bigger software problem.
