Right-to-left writing, conversion to mobi problem.

Hello,

I want to create some translation tables with Hebrew (right-to-left writing) and another language with left-to-right writing (in my case, Portuguese).

I created a table like the one in this example www.lopezmoreira.net/hebtable and then converted it to MOBI file with Calibre. Then, when I open the file in my kindle, the "right-to-left" text had its direction inverted becoming something like a left-to-right text.
If I open the mentioned link in my kindle, the text inversion problem does not appear, just if I convert it to MOBI file using Calibre.

Does the MOBI file support such a table mixing both kinds of writing direction? Or perhaps is some implementation missed?

Regards.

@alexandrelm: The mobi6 renderer on Kindle (eInk, at least) devices doesn't support RTL.

You might have better luck with a KF8 file on KF8 capable devices, but it might still not be perfect.
