           Summary: MS-Word. export LANG=he_IL.UTF8. Broken word order
                    while writing.
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.2
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: dotan.g at gmail.com


I am an Hebrew speaker and writer. Hebrew is written, unlike English from
right-to-left. That means that when I write a document, I use both languages.

MS-Word has a long history of bug concerning this language switch inside the
document. But, I never had this problem before:

When I run MS-Word on wine, I use this: "export LANG=he_IL.UTF8". This enables
Hebrew. When I write in Hebrew it's fine and it works great. but, if I switch
to English... then the sentence "The car was damaged pretty badly" looks like
this: "car was damaged pretty badly the". if I use capital letter in the
beginning, then it looks like this: "he car was damaged pretty badlyT" if I use
a comman: "damaged pretty badly was .the car" and so on...
It seems that it can't handle ",./'\][!@#$%^&*()" as well as Capital letters
along side with the fact that it does a mix of a regular sentence.

If I hadn't run it with: "export LANG=he_IL.UTF8", then the same as above would
apply for Hebrew as well.

It is basic and very common for duel language writers to use both languages in
one document. the solution I found so far was just to use one of them... but I
can't really work like that.

Please check this out, MS-Word is an important tool as you may know.
