Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu, and Farsi (Persian) are written from right to left, while numbers and segments of Latin (or Cyrillic or Greek) text are embedded in this text from left to right. The dual directionality aspects of such bidirectional text are posing challenges to the way this text is processed and presented in WebSphere Process Server. This article provides an overview of the level of support for languages with bidirectional scripts in WebSphere Process Server. It outlines the design considerations and its limitations with respect to bidirectional text handling. In addition, it describes tools that can help to correctly handle bidirectional text in WebSphere Process Server.
