Change text direction in "Large HTML" field on opening a defect

Yael K (47830) | asked Aug 11 '14, 10:19 a.m.
 Hi Everyone,

When opening a defect, I try to write mixing two languages in the description field [that is an HTML field],
but as I save the defect the text gets scrambled, because of this mix.
Is there any way to use standard HTML tagging to align the text to the right ?

For example:
text text text

If not, is there any other solution ?

Thank you,

interesting question - comment to bump it.

I wonder whether the problem is caused by the mixed languages because I can't even make the text aligned to the right. I don't know how you can add the <div> tag to the HTML field, as I use a REST client to modify the work item and the <div> tag gets filtered out - the saved field value has no <div> tag at all. RTC uses CKEditor for text editing and the editor widget is of "cke_contents_ltr" class and I think it may well be a limitation that the editor will only handle LTR? CKEditor itself supports RTL but there is no mention about supporting LTR and RTL at the same time.
