Technical help regarding display of RTL Languages (Hebrew,Arabic,Farsi) domains

Can anyone please send me instructions on what needs to be done to correct a situation where a specific page is displaying RTL languages wrong.

For example the domain: דוגמא.com is the proper way but it shows: אמגוד.com

Thanks in advanced.

Have you checked what was the character set (charset) in the header of the webpage ? Make sure it's utf-8 (charset=utf-8 ) and not some iso stuff or latin-1

On a couple of my sites I've used the following line of code ...

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" DIR="RTL">

On your pages, you will most likely have a <head> tag. Try replacing that with the one above and see if that fixes the problem.

Re: Technical help regarding display of RTL Languages (Hebrew,Arabic,Farsi) domains

Placing dir=rtl in the head would also shift the scroll bar to the left side.

I like to keep the scroll bar on the right side, and that i do by using "Div".

<div style="direction:rtl">
enter Hebrew text here
</div>
also for Hebrew align text to the right
<div style="direction:rtl; text-align:right;">
or place it in the CSS
