    This pmr is related to BIDI support
    A tn3270 session defined with Host Code-Page 424 (Hebrew)
    When in LTR screen orientation and using the print screen
    (either by File -> Print screen or by Print entire screen tool
    bar icon) the printed page appears partially inverted, i.e.
    some of the fields appear as inverted place, others are left
    with the correct order.
    
    I uploaded two sample print outputs, of tso main ispf menu,
    which showing the problem:
    Session-cp424.pdf - Print screen when using codepage 424
                        Showing the problem
    Session-cp037.pdf - Print screen when using codepage 037
                        Correct output
    
    The problem appears only with v6, also with refresh 6.0.5 and
    not with v5.9
