    Do you get XEP 2.7 working with Urdu??? How did you manage
    to resolve writing-mode problems?

    We have had a problem with Thai script, resolved in XEP 2.77. You should
    update XEP to the latest version in 2.x branch - it's 2.78. Please contact to arrange the download of 2.78 package.

    However, XEP 3.x is more suitable for multi-language documents -
    it supports right-to-left writing and bidirectionality. Upgrading
    XEP to version 3 might be an option to consider.

    Best regards,
