I've added rules for RTL languages to the style sheet. It's a matter of
interpretation and taste how to translate the "look and feel" of the
page to different languages. Apart from the alignment of headers, I've
only changed the layout of the address at the bottom.

I've tried to be careful, but it may of course be that my changes have
influenced something that shouldn't be changed. Maybe the translator (or
some other native speaker) can check if there is something that looks

Two things I couldn't (yet) change:

The heading at the top of the right-hand menu is part of the style sheet
and currently reads "Local links" in English. In some translations that
heading is replaced in others it is not. If the translator thinks it
should be translated, he can give me the Hebrew text and I'll put it in
the style sheet.

The page at http://www.webstyles-hebrew.com/Style/index.html uses a
local style sheet. My changes to the original style sheet thus don't
affect it, unless Axel downloads a new copy. (The other Hebrew
translations all seem to use the original style sheet directly.)
