A tool to reverse the direction of Hebrew text

[ return to all articles ]

A common problem when working with Hebrew text is that a text editor will get confused and treat the Hebrew text as English text, and will revserse its direction from right-to-left to left-to-right. This reverses the text, making the first letter the last, and making the last the first. I found this text reversal tool, written by Steve Morse. I copied his code here so that I could make the form field bigger, allowing for larger amounts of text. Be sure to visit his site for more of his excellent language and translation tools.
