Hi,

I wonder who decided, so to speak, that English is written from left to right, while Arabic is from right to left, for example.

It doesn't look like anybody will ever know the answer to that question, Izzy.

One little note: It's interesting that some ancient writing systems could actually be written and read in both directions. The first line of writing might go right to left, and the second line could go left to right, etc. Among these writing systems were ancient Egyptian, Phoenician, and even Greek! Smile
