Arabic and Hebrew text

New and improved features for working in Arabic and Hebrew are available in the Middle East and North African edition of this software.

Bi-directional text flow

Text in Middle Eastern languages is mostly written from right to left (RTL). However, in general, the most commonly used form is bi-directional (bidi) text - a mix of left-to-right and right-to-left text. An example of bidi text is a paragraph that includes Arabic and English text. In CS6, you can use Dreamweaver to type Arabic, Hebrew, or bidi text, in design view and code view.

In Dreamweaver Middle Eastern version, Right-to-left direction attribute can be applied to two notional objects, paragraphs and characters. The direction attribute can be applied to tags supported in the HTML specification. The direction attribute can take values: ltr (default), rtl, or inherit.

When you enter Arabic, Hebrew, or mixed text, Dreamweaver recognizes the languages as Right-to-left (RTL) and displays it text appropriately.
