Still, if we take the sentence, in logical order:
TO SAY "CAR" IN ENGLISH, SAY "car"
Which is the exact same sentence, only in the different "language". Ideally,
you would render it:
"car" YAS ,HSILGNE NI "RAC" YAS OT
Notice how, despite the fact that both sentences begin with right-to-left
characters, one has the right-to-left part on the left, while the other has
the right-to-left part on the right? This is because the first is an English
sentence, with an occasional Hebrew word, while the second is a Hebrew
sentence, with an occasional English word.
Well, Can any one point me to whatever app in whichever platform built on
cutever or getikever that implements this properly.
