Description michbarsinai 2008-11-05 11:44:58 UTC
Middle eastern characters (Hebrew, Arabic) show as generic squares rather than proper glyphs.
Issue happens on Mac (OS X.5) and Windows (XP).

Display is solved on netbeans 6.5 RC2 on OS X (maybe also on rc1, didn't check). Very hard to edit the text, as going through the text with the arrows messes 
up the text display.

The NetBeans editor does not currently handle right-to-left text well. Making a dup of issue 69750.
