That's correct -- no news with respect to right-to-left languages in FM9.

With all versions of FrameMaker/Windows, you can add some isolated strings 
in Hebrew/Arabic (but without correlation between cursor location/selected 
text and the "real" insertion point).

My speculation is that support for right-to-left languages does not seem 
likely, despite the implementation of Unicode in FM.
