Writing with alternating tines written in opposite directions; one line is written from left to right, then the next line s letters are reversed, written from right to left.
ProximaSoftware Glossary




Writing as the ox plows , that is alternating between left to right and right to left writing directions. Early alphabets (Old Canaanite, and the very early greek writings (and, surprisingly, fuþark)) used this. Often the right to left glyphs would be mirrors of the left to right ones. As far as I know, no modern writing system uses this method (nor does OpenType have any support for it). See Also Bidi.
