These are actually Latin/Arabic and Latin/Hebrew, with the lower order
characters US-ASCII and the higher order characters in Arabic or Hebrew.
I don't have the Arabic character set available for my DOS machine, but
I did set my character set to ISO 8859-8 and checked conversion from
the ISO 8859-1 test set. This converted well and should be useful for
someone with Latin/Hebrew as their usual display character set, trying
to browse the web and read pages in ISO 8859-1 or other common character
sets. There are web pages written in Hebrew. I don't know if they use
this character set. Since you only have to read the page and not write
it with lynx, I don't see where left-to-right or right-to-left makes a
difference. Is there an internal problem with the representation that I
am missing?
