[Old thread] Need help -> Kindle 3, Mobi format, Hebrew

Just got myself the new Kindle 3, tried some odt to mobi conversion with calibre and all went fine.

I'm trying to convert Hebrew text to Mobi format and had 2 problems

1. direction - Hebrew is RTL and not LTR and though text alignment is correct, text direction is not.
2. Fonts - viewing the mobi on my Ubuntu shows the Hebrew fonts correctly, but on the kindle3 I get question marks in squares instead of Hebrew font.

I've tried to solve problem 1 with custom style: body{direction:rtl;} - did not work, calibre ignored it

I've tried to play with the fonts on the conversion settings screen, but yet - no success.

Help please?
