Thank you for your comment.  BiDi is one of major challenging issues
and which I am interested in.  However, I don't know well about this.
I'd like to start to study BiDi soon.  (Since I don't know very well
about the internal of mlterm, I am not sure BiDi can be implemented
into mlterm.  I'll ask the main developer about this.)

To study about BiDi, is the following document enough, or do you
have some recommendation? (though I have not read the document yet).

Unicode Standard Annex #9 The Bidirectional Algorithm
