Re: Mac OS X didn’t support Right to Left (RTL) languages?

MS Office for Mac was written using the Mac Carbon API, which wasn't RTL. The osx Cocoa API, which came out immediately before "13 years ago", did support RTL and other scripts. It's taken MS 13 years to do a complete re-write of MS Office for Mac.
