I'm having two (more) problems writing Hebrew with XeLaTeX.
1. When I'm trying to have a nested enumerate environment, I get an
error of the form
! Incomplete \iffalse; all text was ignored after line 12
line 12 being the first nested item. I then get no pages of output.
The log file contains no extra info, as far as I see. This seems
special to Hebrew: I tried switching to Farsi, and it disappears.
2. When I have, say, the second subsection in the first section, it gets
enumerated right-to-left, i.e., by ".2.1" I don't know if this is a
bug or a feature, but it is seems unnatural to me, and also against
convention. I was wondering if there is a way to make it the same as
in LTR text, i.e., I would like ".1.2" This one happens in Farsi as
The following example illustrates both issues (though you would need to
comment out the nested enumeration to see the second problem)
I would be happy to investigate myself, but I have no idea even what
files to look at.
