We have an approach to deal with a list of 100 phrases in Arabic
using Adobe/Macromedia Flash. When you copy and paste a phrase of
Arabic into a Flash textbox, Flash reverses it! (Flash does not
handle RTL languages well)
So, we thought that we could first reverse the characters outside of
Flash and then copy and paste the reversed phrases into Flash.
Problem solved right?
We'll, when someone that can read Arabic read the phrases, they told
us that the characters looked funny. In essence, the characters
weren't connecting to each other correctly! It's as if you took a
cursive font and laid out the characters and the cursive writing was
Does Arabic fonts have different versions of a character depending on
it's neighboring characters?
Is there a way for me to map my reversed phrases to the appropriate
characters so that when Flash reverses them everything will look ok?
