In Tools -> Options
Then Language Settings -> Complex Text Layout
There is an option on the right called "Numerals".

It takes one of three values: Arabic, Hindi and System. In Windows XP, there is 
an option called "Context". When this is used, Numerals will be "Arabic" when 
near English text and will be "Hindi" when they appear near Arabic text.

This option does not appear in this menu. When I choose "System" from the menu, 
and I have the "Context" option in my Windows XP settings, I expect to get that 
behavior. This is not working either.

Also, when documents are printed, this option is ignored all together. All 
digits appear in Hindi.

We have temporary fix for this issue. We send our patch for everyone to review. 
In the patch we use a static variable to keep numerals locale data from ctl
dialog options and set this data before display text number in outputs (screen
and printer).

SBA: (1) The printing problem was a defect and was fixed with internal #111922#
in CWS vcl7pp1r2, thus will be fixed in OOo 1.1.1. 

(2) The "Context" thingie is an ENHANCEMENT and not a defect.

SBA-> Ahmad: (A) We can't proceed "collective tasks". Please report ONE thing
per issue in the furture. Thanks for your comprehension.

(B) "Mutating" issues are highly ineffective: To understand them, the amount to
read grows and grows while large parts don't match the "current" subject at all.
If you like, have a look at the worst example there is at times concerning "too
much to read to be effective": issue 1820

So please submit a new issue about the Context sensitive behavior and flag it as
ENHANCEMENT in the first place. Thank you. I talked to the developer: It would
probably be a further list box entry beside Arabic/Hindi/System.
