    Add at the start of each reversed word a U+202D LRO and at the end a U+202C

    Also somehow the weird idea comes into my head that visual hebrew should be
    disunified from logical hebrew and encoded as a separate script.

    Subject: hebrew font conversion

    [This is really a question for the Hebrew Computing Forum, but I have tried
    there and drew a blank.]
    The problem is that I composed many documents in Word using an ad hoc Hebrew
    font, and wish to convert to Unicode.
    When I run a macro that exchanges the old codepoints for the U+Hebrew
    points, the characters in each word are reversed. I have tried to cure this
    by writing another macro using StrReverse() . Sometimes this works, but
    there are problems - especially with tables.
    Does anyone have experience of this, and or/a solution ?
    I will have the same problem with Arabic Word docs.
