    In a table, I presume you'd need to reverse the string in each cell one
    at a time. Actually, I'd expect your biggest problem is that you need to
    reverse formatted *lines* of text one at a time.

    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.
