I appreciate the comments, but such a soluion would, in effect, prohibit
mixing languages within a single paragraph, sentence, or even line,
something that isn't all that common even in a mostly single language
document. For example "The sense of the word XYZ (in some other language
with a different character set) isn't quite the same as its definition would

languages, fonts, and characters are handled.

There is no doubt whatsoever that things have improved dramatically in this
regard since the early days of the PC, but at some point we need to finish
the process begun with code pages, refined by by unicode and other such
improvements. What better project to make these advances that LibreOffice.
(Of course, some serious Writer bugs need to be fixed as well, but I'm

Are there any L10n folks who want to chime in? Should this thread be
reposted or copied to that area? Are there any contributing developers who
are fluent in any of the CTL languages? Developers who aren't familiar with
at least some multi-lingual issues probably have a huge hurdle to overcome
before diving in.

I would be happy if we could come up with a decent document showing what
LibreOffice support should be for Complex Text Languages.
