Hebrew goes from right to left because it was designed in the hammer-and-chisel days, hammer in right hand.



Now that's a factoid I have not heard before. What about Japanese? I guess that writing from top to bottom wouldn't smear the ink either.


No, no, because they never let the hand touch the paper, so no risk of smearing the ink.
