    i have a similar problem...

    i am using the al-rassam software to convert arabic text in a windows document, to usable text.

    this text is put into a utf-8 encoded text file and loaded into a text file.

    this works okay, if the text displayed fits all into one line. however, if the text wraps onto two or more lines, it goes wrong.


    the sentence: "hello, this should be
    some arabic text."

    comes out: "some arabic text.
    hello, this should be

    ie. the first line is at the bottom of the paragraph.

    writing code to sort this out would be an absolute mofo, anybody got an idea how to fix it easily?
