Hi Shachar,

I am reading your interview and a few words jumped out at me, mostly
"BiDi", "shaping" and "unicode" - very vague I know, but if I
understand correctly Pango is a library with advanced support for shaping
and laying out all kinds of different scripts. Only stopper I can think of
would be that it uses UTF-8 not UTF-16.

Have you looked at this, or am I talking smack?

thanks -mike
