PHPBiDi is an implementation of the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm in PHP.

This package can be used to get the visual representation of text strings for languages that are written from right to left.

It can parse right to left strings of plain text or HTML and returns visually, rather than logically, ordered strings of characters.

The documents that are in certain idioms use writing systems, like the Arabic, Hebrew and Persian, that have the text characters rendered from right to left (RTL), unlike texts that use the Latin alphabet, that have the text rendered from left to right (LTR).

When you have documents that mix RTL and LTR text, you have a bidirectional text (BiDi). Bidirectional documents present a greater challenge to be rendered, as you need to figure how to render the different sections of the text.

This class provides a solution to process bidirectional documents in such way that it returns the text ordered according the way it is visually rendered.
