ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

I am creating web pages with contents in every languages that Google can translate from English (including Asian languages), plus some English text.
I have used "Gedit" to construct the mix of the text and everything renders well.
I don't anticipate any problem when the mix of languages in an HTML document is from languages written from left to right (Russian & English etc) but I thought a mix of English and Arabic (right to left) could be interesting and I decided to test that combination first.
I am reading a file one line at a time with a BASIC routine and enclosing it within HTML tags and, as I expected, the arabic text is reversed.
Before I spend (possibly considerable) time working out the details of what is happening, I thought I would ask if anyone has experience with this and is able to pass a few tips.
Perhaps reversing the characters in my BASIC routine is not the solution. Perhaps there are other things I should know.
