But Ramy Habeeb, the co-founder of Kotobarabia, explains that even when a text in Arabic has been carefully laid out using InDesign and other similar tools, converting it to ePub proves extremely troublesome, for various reasons: 1 The flow of text goes from right to left, which creates layout problems: if there are indented paragraphs or quotations in the ePub file, they will not be displayed properly. So it is not possible to obtain an ePub directly from an RTF or an InDesign file: the text has to be checked line by line. Habeeb points out that the same thing happened in European publishing several decades ago, when publishers differentiated themselves from each other by their typefaces: each publisher could create their own one, and the result was a plethora of fonts. This is now no longer a problem in Europe, as there are different standardized instruments, such as Microsoft Office or InDesign.
