 (e.g. : Arabic - French - Hebrew - English);

o explicit association of portions of a text with a particular language;

o the definition of user-modifiable writing rules for each language;

o use of a standard keyboard for any language and character set;

o co-mingling of one-byte and multiple-byte character sets (ISO 8859
 series, GB_2312_80, BIG_5, JISX0208, KSC5601).
