Why was BiDi Mail UI created?

I started working on a precursor of this add-on in 2004. It allowed you to switch the dir attribute of the body element of a message, but didn't always work... within a few months I joined forces with Assaf Romano, and together we wrote an extension for both Thunderbird and Seamonkey.

We gradually expanded our feature set - direction autodetection for reading messages, per-paragraph direction in HTML composition etc. Surprisingly, there was never a real distinction between what I was writing "for myself" and what the community found useful :-)

Assaf became more involved with other aspects of the Mozilla project over time, and last year we decided that I'll take over as the single official maintainer.

What's next for BiDi Mail UI

I wish I had the time to devote to doing work on the Mozilla codebase to allow further improvements for this extension's functionality, especially coding hooks for extension to process messages before they are printed.
