Updating docs on using Arabic

Some comments on http://wiki.lyx.org/Windows/Arabic which could be 
brushed up to the latest the current LyX version:

1: "If LyX doesn't correctly accept your keyboard input, open the menu 
Tools → Preferences to use a keyboard map as shown in this screenshot. 
Then click Save and restart LyX."

to be substituted by

"If LyX doesn't correctly accept your keyboard input, open the menu 
Tools → Preferences → Editing → Keyboard/Mouse to use a keyboard map 
as shown in this screenshot. Then click Save and restart LyX." The 
screen shot could be updated as well. Only minor changes.

2: "In Tools→Preferences→Language settings→Language, assure that 
"Right-to-left language support" is checked." I would appreciate 
comments on what "logical" and "visual" are for.

3: Using ArabTeX:

- F12 to switch between Arabic and English does not work. How can that 
be amended?
- The English text is underlined in blue. What does that mean?

Using LyX 1.6.3 on WinVista.

Thanks !!!

Hello Jannick,

our Wiki is like the Wikipedia - you can modify the text of every wiki page without being 
registered. Just press on the Edit link in the upper right and start.

What exactly do you refer to? Visual should be clear: the characters appear "txet" and not "text".

I described this now in the Wiki page in the section "Creating a shortcut to switch the language" 
and updated the page a bit.

A blue underline indicates that the text is in a different language than the document-wide language. 
More information about this is given in the LyX User's Guide that you find in LyX's Help menu.

Ah, I didn't know. I thought that all your sites are pass word 
protected since your documentation is quite neat and well-kept.

I thought that some tool tips in LyX could be helpful here. I was 
referring to the different behaviour of the cursor under the 
alternative choices.

This works for me here. In both modes the character is inserted where the cursor currently is. Is 
the RTL support activated? Have you restarted LyX after you changed the cursor mode?

Concerning the cursor modes I've written this in the English UserGuide:

Cursor movement
When writing RTL, you can define if the left and right arrow keys moves the cursor visually to the 
left or right, respectively, or logically. Logical means that the cursor is moved to the left when 
pressing the right arrow key and the cursor is inside text in an RTL language.
