Formatting arabic text

Hello!

I'm new with Sigil and I have lot of trouble formatting Arabic text, for example RTL direction not perfect, the dot at the end of the paragraph doesn't work (it is at the beginning of the last line instead).

Can' some one help me?

Thank you so much.

Majid

You most likely forgot to apply the proper RTL attributes. Have a look at the sample epub file attached to this older post by me. (I used Sigil to create the ePub file.)

Thanks ones more, but I did do that but I think I didn't write the code properly.
I've used a Stylesheet like that (and I've attached it) :
p {
font-family:"trado";
text-align: right;
font-size: 1.2em;
dir: rtl;
margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}
And the code in html file :
<body>
<p>أذكر فيه أسانيد الكتاب وغيرها وقد تكرر ذكرها في الكتاب لئلا يطول. </p>
</body>

The Book view shows the dot on the right side.
I'm I missing something?

You can't use dir in styles, use direction: rtl; (or <body dir="rtl">) instead.
