You can also do \style{direction:rtl}{math} to attach the corresponding style attribute to any MathML element and Gecko will interpret that the same way as the MathML dir attribute (however, this won't work with other MathML rendering engines). Personally, your proposal \dir{rtl} (or even just \rtl{...}) seems the simplest way and the parsing can be easily implemented in MathJax (although MathJax will still need to implement the MathML RTL rendering). I'm cc'ing Khaled and Azzedine since I think they had experimental LaTeX implementations with RTL / Arabic support and probably know more about that and might even mention existing LaTeX packages. -- Frédéric Wang maths-informatique-jeux.com/blog/fredericReceived on Tuesday, 5 November 2013 14:27:16 UTC
