Well, it's not that involved ;-)

I doubt it, but something along these lines should do it:

% tex=aleph output=dvipdfmx
\pagedir TRT
\bodydir TRT
\pardir  TRT
\textdir TRT
\hoffset=0pt % bug



\section{Dutch Cow}

{This is an example of a cow.}

\section{Another Dutch Cow}

{This is an example of a cow.}



Hmm, seems to work here; maybe Duncan did not use \bodydir TRT?

Hans: How do we configure the "."=>"-" separator?
