Hi all,

I have a requirement to create Right to Left language site (Arabic). Just wondering which is the best location to add dir="rtl" attribute ? Is it the beginning <html> tag (<html dir="rtl">) or should I add this tag in each component <div> (<div dir="rtl">). Is there any harm in adding it at page <html> level rather than individual component level. If a site is in Right To Left then all the section of site should be "Right to Left" - correct ? So in this case then it make sense to add at <html> tag level instead of individual component level.

Let me know if you have any prior experience on this ?

It is not only html tag, you might have to consider other assets like css, dialogs, rich text editor when using rtl.

Following adobe blog provides check list for using rtl
