Hi,

I tried Alephs body and textdir commands with LuaTeX and the output
in DVI mode is as I want (the text is written from top to bottom and left
to right).

The same example in PDF mode did not work, the text is written on the
left side and every new line written over the first line.

%\pdfoutput=1

\hsize=8cm
\vsize=8cm

\bodydir RTR
%\pagedir RTR
\pardir RTR
\textdir RTR

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
