Right to Left Attribute

    I use css attribute direction right to left <style=”direction:rtl;”> for arabic text but it doesn’t work. Anyone can help?

    The blog I need help with is dakwahislamindonesiaonline.wordpress.com.


    I checked the Arabic text in your “Wajibnya Berdoa dalam Islam” post and I found that the paragraph where you added “direction:rtl” is working to display that text right-to-left as expected. You probably don’t need “text-align:right” in that same set of CSS, but that shouldn’t make a difference.


    Thank you for the response, I removed “text-align:right” the arabic text look right to left written but it align left still. Even the sidebar switch down after the footer, I’ve tried it the same for two different theme. Just check out now http://dakwahislamindonesiaonline.wordpress.com/2012/06/10/wajibnya-berdoa-dalam-islam/
    It doesn’t crash against arabic font, doesn it?

    Thank you again


    I did check this related help page and it seems to me that you should be able to use the CSS property as you’ve written it: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/CSS/direction

    I’m not sure about the font though. Could you try adding “font:serif;” to the style property for the Arabic paragraphs?


    I move to another theme, it works well and the problem disappear. You can check it out now. Thank you.


    It looks similar to me. :) I’m glad to hear you found a theme that works well for you now.
