Re: MCL 2.0 and wordlscripts

I have another question related to MCL and world scripts. I want to work
Arabic texts in MCL. As far as I know, MCL (i.e., fred text editing)
support WorldScript as yet, and I had to do a lot of workaround to make
work at least a little bit, but my solution is far from being good. On
the other
hand, one could work with the simpler text-edit-dialog-item's; they are
based on
TextEdit, which supports WorldScript (at least Arabic), but I found no
way to
to enable multi-font-editing, which should be possible according to
Inside Mac
(when I set the appropriate flags in the text edit record, they were
erased after 
the window had been created.
So I am wondering if WorldScript features are going to be included in the
next release of MCL, or if there are other solutions or workarounds
concerning TextEdit and text-edit-dialog-items, which also allow word

Thanks in advance for your help!
