Re: [docbook-apps] RTL in markup/docbook/??

If you could specify what exactly the HTML needs, then we can help with the
stylesheet customization.  Is putting a dir="rtl" attribute in the HTML BODY
tag sufficient? What about the elements in HEAD, like TITLE?

Do you have a sample of HTML that works the way you want?
