About this blog…

I am employed by Netnod as head of engineering, research and development and am among other things chair of the Security and Stability Advisory Committee at ICANN. You can find CV and photos of me at this page.

As I wear so many hats, I find it being necessary to somewhere express my personal view on things. This is the location where that happens. Postings on this blog, or at Facebook, Twitter etc, falls under this policy.

The views expressed on this post are mine and do not necessarily reflect the views of Netnod or any other of the organisations I have connections to.

More examples of R2L and L2R characters

I showed yesterday what the implication is when one mix Right to Left and Left to Right characters in specific contexts. That was explicitly in a Left to Right context. Today I was thinking of showing the difference between different context, but the same logical order of the characters.

In the examples, I in both cases typed in the characters in this logical order (left to right). The # represents U+0628 ARABIC LETTER BEH.

logical-order

When this is displayed in a Left to Right context, the displayed string looks like the following:

l2r-context

But when this is in a Right to Left context, the result is the following:

r2l-context
