Description 2009-02-03 12:57:25 UTC
Followup to issue 95259: ATSUI doesn't use the unicode rules for character mirroring in RTL-contexts. 
Instead it depends on the font providing the Mac-specific "prop" table 
( and the glyph properties being 
set properly for every glyph. This table is usually not even available in third-party fonts, especially not for 
fonts targeted at other platforms. Even if that table is available the mirroring bits are often not set 
correctly for non-Hebrew/non-Arabic fonts.
