with the exception that IMHO it's implemented better in emacs. it's much
less painful to edit mixed text in emacs than what i remember in word or
other programs. especially the automatic paragraph alignment is great.
libreoffice to this day displays a full stop at the end of a paragraph in
arabic (r2l) text at the *beginning* of that paragraph...

so hats off to the emacs devs who worked on this. great job.
