The problem does not come from Calibre - it comes from you using Calibre incorrectly.

If you find out how to create KF8 with RTL properly on Calibre please share here.

You can create a group here (for example with a name like: "RTL Languages on Kindle: Arabic, Hebrew,..." )

@Doitsu, many thanks for your detailed and helpful reply. I'm thinking of writing some example books and post them with the source. I believe some collaboration with those who are interested can result in some good quality books and at least pay tribute to the Arabic language.

Question Using Hebrew fonts on kindle

I built a book for kindle with English as the primary language. There are Hebrew text words included in several locations. When I build with Kindle preview on my PC all looks good on my PC and I-Phone. However, when uploaded to Kindle and viewed on the Online viewer, the Hebrew text appears as boxes. Will end users have to install Hebrew fonts on their Apple devices? If so, which ones?

Also, you should be able to send such ebook files to Personal Documents service now, as it preserves KF8 formatting (something that was added recently). However I don't know if it will properly convert .doc/.rtf/.txt files in Hebrew (probably not). Send To Kindle browser extension doesn't, it seems. So you may need to learn how to create kf8 files (or use Kindle Previewer or kindlegen to convert epub files you may have).

And the pd conversion service will only create mobi7 which does not supprt rtl.

Consider creating kindle-sized PDF. It is WYSIWYG, easier to author.

Kindle Previewer is not 100% reliable, however, all currently supported Kindle models support Hebrew text out of the box, if you used Kindle Previewer to build the file.
If you want to support all Kindle models, you'll have to use media queries to display transliterated Hebrew text (or no Hebrew at all) on older Kindle models (K1, K2 and DX).

BTW, do you mean by "all looks good on the IPhone" that you tested it with the iOS Kindle app? If so did you follow the Kindle Previewer instructions and generated an .azk file?

(If you post a short .mobi sample file, I could test it on a K3 and a PW2.)

Hardware Kindles, yes, but note that the iOS Kindle App doesn't support KF8. I don't know whether or not the Android App does.

The latest iOS Kindle App actually does have KF8 and Hebrew support. However, source files need to be compiled as .azk files with Kindle Previewer.

To test this rename hebrew_test_azk.zip to hebrew_test.azk and sideload it to your iOS device with iTunes.

AZK format is similar to KF8, but is not actually KF8. See the Wiki for more details.

It close enough for the OP's purposes, because, unlike Mobi7, it supports Hebrew without an embedded font.

Yes, it's rather irritating, though, that one can't simply sideload KF8 files to the iOS app.
