Hi all.
I'm new to Mapserver and cartoweb. I want to know if cartoweb is able to handle
Arabic-Farsi(Persian) and Hebrew correctly (using gettext). In these languages letter
join to each other to form a word not like others which letters are
separate with no problem. also they are written right to left not left
to right. This is an important point for labeling. I don't know a lot about gettext and reading cartoweb manual, sounds it should be done via gettext. Mapserver itself sounds have problem in joining letters.
in using Cartoweb for me this is very critical.
Thanks in advance
