That's nice, Pierre! The writing is good and the font is shown very
well, but the actual words are messed up, they aren't in a meaningful
order (or may the original source is random words?) Also, is the right
alignment working well with right-to-left languages?

Please note that I'm not a publisher, and I have no experience in
using Scribus but I will be happy to perform any tests needed and give

Thank you for what you do!
