Created attachment 15629 [details] [review] Patch that fixes this issue Hello, I use fribidi library in BiDiTeX project -- support of Hebrew for LaTeX documents, and I found that when I work with documents in cp1255 LRM/RLM marks are not converted correctly and the code does not work. There is a bug in fribidi library, or more exactly in fribidi_cp1255_to_unicode_c() and fribidi_unicode_to_cp1255_c() functions. It does not convert LRM/RLM marks to UNICODE symbols as required (253, 254 <--> 0x200E,0x200F). The same happens in reverse direction (unicode to cp1255) The easiest way to reproduce the problem is following: Take text ("a"," ","א","!",RLM," ","b") in utf-8 and run through fribidi you'll see "a !א b" as it should be Same text encoded with cp1255 run with fribidi -c cp1255 you'll see "a א! b" -- incorrect one. The patch that fixes this problem is attached, it was build against version 0.10.9 Artyom
