If anyone wants to write here or in other forums in Right-to-left languages, then you just have to include this little tweak:

Write what you want to say in the editor as normal – it will be left aligned. When you are done, click "HTML" in the editor and then add in this:

<p style="float: right; text-align: right; font-size: 1em;" dir="rtl">

Before any lines (replacing the <p> if it's there already). There should already be a </p> after. When you click "Update" then you'll see the text looks fine and ready to send!

At the moment I can't make this easier as the entire forum (and my blog) has to be set to one alignment. I hope this helps!
