Description ychaddad 2005-06-20 22:05:05 UTC
It is crucial for Arabic users to be able to write both Hindi and Arabic
numerals in the same document. It is essential to add a feature in the General
Options of Complex Text Layout, that allows numerals to be displayed according
to the context. United Nations documents (see link above and compare numerals
wile opening the docmument in MS Word and Writer) are examples of such
situations. Inside an Arabic document, numerals should be in Hindi, while other
numerals referring to English symbols or codes should be in Arabic numerals. A
few UN Organizations are now migrating to Linux. This feature will prevent many
others, including the United Nations Secretariat, from migrating to linux or
open source software. This issue should also be considered in connection with
other issues such as adding a list of auto-numbering according to the system
used in International Organizations (which I can provide upon request), as well
as the possibility of copying Arabic numerals from an English text and pasting
them in Hindi numerals in an Arabic document and vice-versa.
Thanks for your time and effort.
