(Doc ID 762672.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 10, 2018

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 10.1.3.4.2 and later
Oracle E-Business Suite Technology Stack - Version 11.5.10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.

Symptoms

PDF documents rendered by BI Publisher display bidirectional text incorrectly because LRM(\U+200E) and RLM(\U+200F) unicode control characters are ignored.

Using BI Publisher API in standalone J2EE application.

Bidirectional text will be displayed incorrectly if it contains RLM or RLM characters.
The RLM and LRM control characters are necessary to resolve several bidirectional ambiguities.
Like "Neutrals between different directional runs", "Neutrals between same directional runs",
"Nesting directional runs" etc
