In this tip, Mike Snow talks about Bi-directional text and demonstrates this property in action.

BiDi or Bi-directional text is text that flows right-to-left (RTL) and left-to-right (LTR). For example, while English flows left to right other languages such as Arabic, Hebrew and Persian scripts flow right to left. Chinese characters can also be written in either RTL or LTR directions.

Silverlight supports BiDi through a property called FlowDirection. This property can be set to either RightToLeft or the default LeftToRight.
