سلام وفا,

Have you looked at Unipad? It was created by a Persian team and is, in my  
view, the best unicode editor out there, especially as reagrds its  
implementation of bidi -- although it applies it only line-by-line. In any  
case, that is the standard to match or beat, in my view.

Also, Notepad++ is a very good editor with global bidi support -- above  
and beyond what Scintilla provides. My own suggestion would be to work  
with Neil Hodgson and/or Don Ho to add full bidi support to Scintilla. I  
have even considered the possibility of raising funding to accomplish just  

Please forgive my fuzuulee, Vafa ;-)

سلام and Best Wishes
