BIDI algorithm for Mozilla (from ICU)

BIDI algorithm for Mozilla

This is an implementation of the Unicode Bidirectional algorithm. The algorithm is defined in the Unicode Technical Report 9, version 5, also described in The Unicode Standard, Version 3.0 .

General remarks about the API:

The <quote>limit</quote> of a sequence of characters is the position just after their last character, i.e., one more than that position.

Some of the API functions provide access to <quote>runs</quote>. Such a <quote>run</quote> is defined as a sequence of characters that are at the same embedding level after performing the BIDI algorithm.

XUL + XPCOM application runner
XULRunner is a single "gecko runtime" that can be used to bootstrap
multiple XUL + XPCOM applications that are as rich as Firefox and
XUL is Mozilla's XML based User Interface language that lets you build
feature-rich cross platform applications. These applications are easily
customized with alternative text, graphics and layout so that they can be
readily branded or localized for various markets. Web developers already
familiar with Dynamic HTML (DHTML) will learn XUL quickly and can start
building applications right away.
XPCOM is a cross platform component model. It has multiple language
bindings and IDL descriptions so programmers can plug their custom
functionality into the framework and connect it with other components.
