Could you create a [rtl] tag?

Post by Jason Hare » Thu Nov 16, 2017 1:26 pm

Could you do us the favor of creating an [rtl‎] tag?

Simply create a BB tag that would substitute [rtl] for the following:

Code: Select all

<span style='direction: rtl; unicode-bidi: bidi-override;'>...</span>


I don't think it's necessary to use any specific font settings. Just allow us to use right-to-left direction coding, which is appropriate for all Semitic languages.

Why?

Punctuation isn't language-specific. So, when you type punctuation at the end of a sentence, you get the following:

שלום, חברים.

The period obviously doesn't belong at the right side of that sentence. I have a workaround, using the U+200F character from the character map:

שלום, חברים.‏

That works, but the [rtl] tag would be useful.

Thanks!

Jason
