How to create a footer with text written from right-to-left as in Hebrew or Arabic
While typing in right-to-left language, the text is improperly aligned.
If you need to use Hebrew, Arabic or any other type of right-to-left language, you will have to use special HTML attribute to align the text properly.
Start editing your signature using the built-in Editor. On the HTML tab, click the source code view button.
Locate all containers (like paragraphs - <P> tags) and modify them by adding dir=rtl attribute. An exemplary paragraph tag should look like in the picture below:
If you have a signature with both right-to-left and left-to-right languages, use the dir=ltr attribute for left to right parts.
Please do not use the dir attribute globally (e.g. as whole body attribute), if you want to use right-to-left and right-to-left alignment as well in one message. This can cause serious problems with rendering such message in e-mail clients. Please note also that the dir is an attribute of HTML, so it cannot be used as independent tag like paragraph or link.
