Writing direction

Most writing directions work from left to right.



In Latin script the different letters of the alphabet are written from left to right.

In Chinese you work with symbols, which are normally written from left to right, but can also be placed in columns from top to bottom.

Arabic is written from right to left. For Arabic letters this is the natural writing direction.



In all scripts, the different digits of a number are written from left to right, and aligned to the right.
