1. This is a numbered list!
A list supports the alignments left and justified text only. Right aligned
or centred text produce unpredictable output. A list must be finished
with the tag \EL#.
The default distance between the list character and the text is 10 units.
This is an end of list marker, it requires a preceding create list tag, see
above. The tag turns off the current list so that the following text can
be printed in the usual way.
Special characters
The following list defines which characters can be used to insert new lines, tabulators and so on.
Character code (Hex)
0x10 or 0x13 or
New line or end-of-line character code. The combination of a carriage
0x13 + 0x10
return plus a line feed will be treaded as single end-of-line character.
A tabulator is emulated by inserting a variable count of space characters.
The number of characters can be adjusted inside the text with the
command tag \TL[] or outside with the property SetTabLen().
The function supports also specific Unicode characters which are used to control the bidirectional
algorithm. The bidirectional formatting codes are also supported by all other text functions.
Character code (Hex)
LRE Left-to-Right Embedding (treat the following text as embedded left-
RLE Right-to-Left Embedding (treat the following text as embedded
PDF Pop Directional Format (restore the bidirectional state to what it
was before the last LRE, RLE, LRO or RLO)
LRO Left-to-Right Override (force the following characters to be treated
as strong left-to-right characters)
RLO Right-to-Left Override (force the following characters to be treated
as strong right-to-left characters)
LRM Left-to-Right Mark (left-to-right zero-width character)
RLM Right-to-Left Mark (right-to-left zero-width character)
