When using pango-viewer the attached file is displayed correctly,
with xemacs compiled with your options it does not work.
Please remove the phrase "does not work" from your vocabulary.
Replace it with "displays ...", where you fill in "..." with what you
see. But please don't use Hebrew characters, as you cannot guess what
others are going to see.
I suspect you're seeing
1,molahS 2,molahS 3,molahS
where you should be seeing (ie, 1, 2, 3 is logical order).
3,molahS 2,molahS 1,molahS
although I can imagine it might be even uglier than that.
I am not longer sure that the culprit is really pango.
The answer is very simple, I suspect. XEmacs's redisplay effectively
breaks up lines into words (because spaces are ASCII), and displays
those words as blocks. Inside the blocks it might be R2L (as above),
or it might not (I forget the exact details of how words are composed
for display). However, the blocks will be displayed L2R.
