 For Scripture quotations I can cut and paste from my Bible program. For
 single words or short phrases in articles, I can manually enter Hebrew
 text, but have to press the backspace key after each letter. To set the
 text to "Right justified" also helps, as it places the cursor to the right
 hand end of every new line.

 *WimpWriteDir 1  from the Command Line sets everything to right-to-left mode.
 To return to left-to-right, I have to enter 0 riDetirWpmiW*  8-)
