Calibre support for Right-to-Left languages

@Kovid

I was trying to do some recipes for some sites in Hebrew and was not successful in all cases.

For example newspaper Haaretz passed just fine whie one Blog in Hebrew was outside of my powers.

I added this in extra_css to force rtl language but it is ignored in the final result.

Code:
    extra_css = '@font-face {font-family: "serif0";src:url(res:///Data/FONT/serif0.ttf)} body{direction: rtl; font-family: serif0, serif} .article_description{direction: rtl; font-family: serif0, serif} a.article{direction: rtl; font-family: serif0, serif} .calibre_feed_title{direction: rtl; font-family: serif0, serif} .calibre_feed_list{direction: rtl; font-family: serif0, serif} .calibre_feed_description{direction: rtl; font-family: serif0, serif} .feed{direction: rtl} .calibre_class_0{direction: rtl}'
Do you have any plans to add RTL language support to the racipe infrastructure to avoid all this css hassle?

Here is the recipe in question:

When you say it is ignored in the output you mean it's not present? Or that it is present and the SONY is ignoring it?

As for special support for RTL languages, all that should be needed is

extra_css="body {direction: rtl;}"

since IIRC direction is inherited.

I mean it is being ignored in this case by both adobe software and sony reader.

Hi,

I want to make use of the RTL support, but I am confused, what is CSS and where can I add it if you don't mind? at Calibre or at the device?

thanks
