I'm trying to edit Arabic text (in fact Arabic text within an HTML file), and am having some problems:
Whilst I can get the UTF8 Arabic character set to display fine, (I have the editor in UTF-8 DOS mode, and have html tag attributes dir="rtl" and lang="AR" in my html), the file saves and displays fine. But if I try to highlight any of the Arabic text in order to cut and paste, the editor actually selects the wrong text, in the wrong direction; thus it is actually impossible to edit any of the Arabic text string.
I have searched extensively via Google and come up with generally helpful links such as:http://www.ultraedit.com/support/tutorials_power_tips/ultraedit/unicode.htmlhttp://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/bidi-xhtml/
though none actually addresses this particular issue, which seems to be related to the way Ultraedit renders highlighted text within the editor itself. By contrast, Notepad editor allows such editing, fine (albeit the cursor keys work the opposit way around, though that is expected).
Can anyone help me out here?
Thanks for any assistance.
