fixed - Persian word order backwards?

I've just tried to create a passage, copying and pasting Persian text.


Bizarrely, the words are backwards - not the letters, and not the text direction, but the words - as in: 


backwards are the words

 I've tried reversing the text direction on the source text, without results. 


Am I doing something stupid, or is this a bug?


Thanks!

Hi Belisarius,


Have you tried highlighting the lines as phrases? It may help for now whilst we investigate this.

Any word on this? Sentence order is correct for me, but it's written from left to right and it's very irritating. Was hoping that that highlighting would be just a temporary solution for a few days, as you have to reselect the sentence once you click on words. Breaks the flow

It's on the list of things to do, I think in general RTL languages aren't fully supported at the moment as we have no one in-house that really knows about them.

Bummer, but thanks for the fast reply. Was hoping that it'd be quick fix, as highlighting the sentence aleady does the right thing and it should be just matter of applying it on entire text field. Still the best tool there is, so I'll keep using it :)


Edit: Actually found a fix myself, https://css-tricks.com/snippets/css/reversing-text/. It's just a matter of adding a single attribute. Everyone can do it in the inspector


Edit 2: nvm. Translations won't show up anymore and you can't click on words

Hi ileri and Belisarius, can you check to see if this is working now?

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.
