SIL FRED (Friendly Right-to-Left Editor) (Experimental)
Current version: 1.1, released October 2002
FRED simplifies typing with the SIL Ezra font (only) by allowing the user to view text right-to-left as it is typed in a small window. It can then be cut and pasted to any Windows text window. It is therfore not required to use Microsoft Word 6.0 and the Reverse macro when typing with the SIL Ezra font.
