Right-to-left Text Support

By regular chatting, did you mean the legacy chat service or the new chat service? Could you please provide a screenshot? Thank you!

The problem with RichText tags seems to be that they are considered LTR text by the text direction interpreter. I wonder if that interpreter could instead use a sanitized version of the text which doesn’t have the RichText tags? They seem to mess up the process of determining text direction.

@GFink , thanks for your input, I will talk with our language specialist about this issue. It seems html does support changing a <div> to layout from right to left.
