Updated tutorial: Creating HTML Pages in Arabic, Hebrew and Other Right-to-left Scripts
This tutorial was updated to incorporate changes made to the article What you need to know about the bidi algorithm and inline markup, but various additional changes were made, including a new approach to handling examples. For a detailed list of changes read the full post.
Translators should consider retranslating the whole tutorial.
The title was changed from ‘Creating (X)HTML Pages in Arabic & Hebrew’ to ‘Creating HTML Pages in Arabic, Hebrew and Other Right-to-left Scripts’.
This article was revised to provide more clarity. More examples were added, and a new approach was taken, using images for examples and providing links to live code.
The term ‘directional context’ was replaced with ‘base direction’, the meaning and impact of that was expressed better. It also shows a little more clearly the types of problem the bidi algorithm needs help with, and how the proposed solutions related to each other.
