I had this great idea to do study notes in plain text (nvALT using markdown). The idea of platform and program agnostic notes sounds so great!  The problem now is mixing Hebrew (R to L) with L to R like Engish or Greek. Any time I switch my keyboard to Hebrew, the paragraph (line?) becomes R to L for everything and I can't switch it back. So my question: is anyone doing Markdown (or any plain text formatting tags) using Hebrew and what have you discovered about the R to L orientation?

Yes, and some text editors mix better than others for sure, but I always just keep R2L and L2R text on their own lines to avoid any problems.

Joe,

In your experience, which editors handle r2l the best?

Thanks.

I pretty much only use TextEdit, BBEdit/TextWrangler, and TextMate.

Alternating between Hebrew and English on a single line works flawlessly in them all. I just tested and can't see any problems.

A +1 for BBedit/TextWrangler. I use it almost every day and never have an issue with r2l.
