Want alternate cursor movement for BiDi text in order to match with native Windows applications

    Details

      Description

      For bedirectional (BiDi) Text input, LnF is different for Java versus
      native Windows applications:

       
      In Java Swing:
      The cursor moves from left to right (LTR) in English text
      and left to right (LTR) in Arabic text when using the right arrow key

      In WordPad:
      The cursor moves from left to right (LTR) in English text
      and right to left (RTL) in Arabic text when using the right arrow key


      While there doesn't seem to be a general BiDi consensus, Java applications should
      able to follow the way Windows works.

      The RFE is to make this behaviour configurable, e.g. via a command line argument.
