Problem summary

  • In complicated mixed Hebrew-Latin text with numerals, misleading
    Cobol errors appeared. That occurred mainly because of wrong
    line length determination.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Processing was added to re-calculate line length in each
    document event considering injected LRM marks.
    

Temporary fix
