Thanks for the tip, Michelle. Tell me, how does one configure Konsole
to use it? It can be seen here that libfribidi is installed, yet the
Hebrew that looks fine when pasted in Firefox is in fact displayed
reversed in Konsole:

feisty@feisty-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install libfribidi0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
libfribidi0 is already the newest version.

I just looked at the Arabic alphabet, and all 28 of the letters look
familiar to me:

At least in Israel, we use 28 Arabic letters.

If you mean that they are unnecessary and only make the learning even
harder, then you are correct!
