Close relative of Ury Marshak's right-to-left patch ;)

I'll upgrade to 1.16 in the meantime and run it for a while.
What are the options you are considering (i.e. what are the minimal
and the maximal sets of changes) ?

A piece of bad news is that there's a change necessary that may 
turn out to be somewhat ugly (although localised) - a change in 
the paragraph layout logic when both the '<b>' style tags and 
mixed directions are present, I didn't get to that part yet.


P.S. Unfortunately my email has changed, if you tried to contact
