I am quite interested to edit Hebrew text with emacs/xemacs. For that
I re awoke an old Hebrew.el program of the beginning of the
nineties. However there the text is written and SAVED from the
right-to-the-left, which is sometimes called visual method.
However for Tex and other purposes the text should be saved
from-the-left-to-the-right and only displayed from the right-to-the-left.
Now, although I am not specially attracted by MULE, is seems at the
moment that they are only active group working on multilingual support
TAKAHASHI Naoto, of the MULE team told me that they, in order to
include Hebrew support within MULE, need something like a support
of right-to-left display.
As I understand it this would keep the text, written from the
left-to-the-right but displayed vice versa. Now it is supposed that
GNUemacs 20.4 will have something like this, but it is not clear when
it will be released.
Is there some hope that recent versions of xemacs will have such
type of support.
