It is a quite possible actually, all needed is a text layout engine that
does automatic script tagging e.g. Pango and, to some extent, Firefox,
and font that provide localised, script-specific punctuation glyphs, and
it should just work even with plain text. I've been doing that with
Arabic and it works rather reliably.
