    I continue to be amused at the use of the term "visual order" to
    describe left-to-right ordering of scripts that are read right-to-left.

    I thought my questions might provoke some serious and thoughtful
    responses. Mostly I have read the mailing-list equivalent of a barroom
    free-for-all, with people breaking chairs over each other's (and
    Unicode's) heads. I apologize, not least to myself, for getting
    involved in this thread.
