The Input Sources pane of the Languages & Text system preference (called International in previous versions of Mac OS X) provides additional controls for working in multiple languages that include both right- and left-reading orders. Note also that the Character Palette has been renamed the Character Viewer, and there's now just one control to make these available via the menu bar. Also, the Japanese Kana Palette control is gone; it now automatically appears when you choose that input method.
