    I have never worked with Arabic, but the (X)HTML method of changing the
    direction of the script is:

    dir="rtl"

    You can place it in the <html> tag to affect the entire doent, or in
    individual elements to affect just that element.

    As far as I know, the actual script in code view runs left to right, but is
    reversed when seen in a browser.

    Please restrict your line length to 70-75 characters by inserting
    manual returns. Macromedia's brain-dead webinterface is unable
    to do this.

    Right! Occasionally you might also want to specify dir="ltr"
    for English text or for numbers. See

    for a detailed discussion and

    for some examples what can go wrong.
