Yes. My mistake.

It does not require that the editor manipulates the buffer contents in
any way (no visual-hebrew editing). But it would be nice to be able to
read the hebrew text correctly. If I can't read what I write, I write much
slower (try locating a certain sentence in a huge chunk of hebrew text if
the text is displayed "reversed". I have not yet learned to read this...)
