Can I create different space value for each language? in a multi-lingual font

Hi there,
I’m working on a multi-lingual font,
is there a way of creating different space value for each language?

because the relativity between Hebrew and latin seems to be needed this feature.

thank you

You can try but the layout engine may ignore it. Space is still treated differently.

What I haven’t tried yet is a pos feature though, something like:

script IWR;
language dflt;
space <0 0 -50 0>; # RTL, hence negative x advance

… and put it in kern.
