As you might have read before on my blog Flash's text handling for languages that are written from right to left as Arabic or Hebrew is not the state of the art. Unfortunately also in Flash 8 there will be no native support for bidirectional text. So developers that need to support these languages until now had to develop their own text-handling methods.
I was just notified that there is a new attempt to solve this problem: on flashrtl.com Pedram Pourhossein and Farid Arzpeyma offer a free collection of classes that enable you to write both LTR (left-to-right) and RTL (right-to-left) in same text (mixed texts are the most difficult to handle). I didn't test those classes yet, but the examples look good.Posted at September 05, 2005 06:45 PM | Further reading
