Hallo Matthias,

The IBM site offers some info on Unicode and XML, here is one example:
http://www-4.ibm.com/software/developer/library/globalsoft.html?dwzone=opensource
but do a search in their libraries, there is more there. I guess you are
stuck with Windows for now, only MS has full right-to-left implementation
as far as I know. We have several discussion here between developers about
what editors to use, Emacs and some IBM editors are the most favored here,
I recall XSL being mentioned:
http://service2.boulder.ibm.com/devcon/devcon/docs/catalog.htm#00072

Viel Vergnügen,
Dave Possin

Hello

I am looking into implementing unicode Arabic texts in XML.

Do you have any information on this subject?

Do know of any OS that will support right to left text direction other
than Microsoft?

Would you know of any unicode enabled editor that can handle real
unicode in XML?

Matthias
