What do I need to know to create a bilingual blog that uses left-to-right and right-to-left languages simultaneously?
I have looked at the previous AskMe
about bilingual blogging.
I'm toying with the idea of writing a blog that is in both Urdu and English. I'd like the layout to be such that the right side is in Urdu, the left side is in English, and the sides mirror each other. It occurs to me that if I really want to integrate this, so that everything (like sidebars, tags, etc.) is mirrored, this may be considerably more complicated than I can manage.
In terms of experience, I've flirted with English blogging before, but not with Urdu. I am fluent in both languages. I have pre-basic HTML skills, as in, I know a few tags, and that's it.
What are the things I need to consider as I go about planning this project?
I'm assuming that there are at least three categories of things for me to think about:
1) General blog layout stuff that I would have to consider even for just an English blog.
2) Issues specific to trying to use two different scripts simultaneously.
3) Issues specific to blogging in Urdu (potentially similar to blogging in other right-to-left languages).
I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have, up to and including that I should try a simpler format before attempting this.
