#2 Wrong Unicode Text Direction

In the Arabic layout,
- The direction of the text is opposite to that in the text file.
i.e. the word "صيف حار" is displayed as "ر ا ح ف ي ص".
- The words also appear disjoined. In the Arabic language, the letters in a word are normally connected.

At earlier lessons, disjoined letters may be alright for early learning, but at later stages full words cannot be read due to the above two reasons.

The attached file has the Arabic.xml keyboard layout and text files for the lessons composed mostly of lyrics of old songs.

Thanks

    I hope my input is of help.

    The same error appears in Hebrew. I tested it by copying a paragraph from an online news article and the text also has the wrong direction. I think that it will be the same case for other right-to-left written languages.

    It may be needed to have the option of seperated and joined words for Arabic sessions.

    Thanks

    I have updated the lessons. The first three are regular lessons. The "Lesson 4.txt" is used to illustrate this bug and is composed of sentences. It may not be possible to write more lessons without solving this bug.

    Thanks

    While checking some web pages, the same error occurs when using Opera browser and not in Firefox. This error occurs in the same page.
