I am using dreamweaver 3, and I would like to know the easiest way to create a multi-language site, one language is left-to-right language and another one is right-to-left language, so i started with the left-to-right and I want to make the right-to-left as a mirror for it, it is the process of fliping all the contents horizantly, is there any way in dreameaver three that will take less effort.

another thing is that I want toi removethe lines under the text that acts as a link.

If you want the style to apply to the whole page then do this....

<html>
<head>
<style>
a:link
{
text-decoration: none;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<a href="my_page.htm">My Page</a>
</body>
</html>

hi,
using a different language usually requires using a different charachter encoding. Right to left language is usuall arabic, this is the character encoding for it:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
place that line within your head tag. you can also try finding other character sets on the net, just type your language in the search bar along with the query 'html charset' or something like it.

Greets,
misterH

I believe it would be healthy if you set the content type to contentType="text/html; charset=utf-8"... this would be helpful as utf8 supports a wide range of languages. Once this is done, ideally do NOT set dir attribs to the tags. instead use the css version of that. So, that you can switch the style sheets dynamically when porting to different languages.Also, avoid using dir attrib or its css equalent in td tags inside which you have placed images.

I forgot to mention the most important aspect here.....you will need to set dir attribute in the table tags (what I advice to do instylesheets). Also, the lang attribute in the html tag.

Direction Attrib:-
dir="rtl" / "ltr"

rtl - right align
ltr - left align

Language Attrib:-
lang="en_US"

DO NOT set these values to the HTML tag. Though HTML tag support this. It would be ideall to set these to only those tables where you want the direction change to happen. Hope this helps.
