Subject: Re: [office] Bi-directional text.


If it would not be too much extra work, could you also write an 
explanation with specific reference to the comments from the Egyptian 
National Body that accompanied their yes vote on ODF? Thinking that the 
general explanation is a great idea but in this context, answering the 
specific cases that they pose would also be quite useful. We can 
incorporate that into a disposition of the comment.

We also need to consider how to response to the comments from the 
Israeli National Body and the UK.


Hope you are having a great day!
