Greetings, I'm setting up RSS on my web site but since the language of my site and my feed is right-to-left, I was wondering if there is a way to say that in the rss document. so rss readers view it as right-to-left document. Thank you.

Hello Chaffe;

To display your feeds from right to left you can simply use the Language tag.

Example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0">
<channel>
<language>ar-lb</language>
<title>As-Safir Newspaper</title>
<link>http://www.assafir.com</link>
<description>As-Safir Arabic Political Daily.</description>
...

Regards;
Mohamad McHaimech.

Hi,
one way is as suggested by mchaimech, where the user can see the language and understand.
or
You can create a tag to say if your content is from right to left...
example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<rss version="2.0">
<channel>
<contenttype>Arabic, Read from right to left</contenttype>
<title>Experts Exchange</title>
<link>http://www.experts-exchange.com</link>
