Right to Left Problem on Safari

On PHP Maker we used the following custom CSS to make the code go from RTL in order to support Hebrew. However the problem is that on MAC SAFARI ONLY the scroll bars do not show up for the window and thus the user cannot scroll left and right to show the whole database. What needs to be changed?
body {

    background-color: #FFFFF0; /* background color */

    color: inherit; /* text color */

    font-family: Arial; /* font name */

    font-size: 12px; /* font size */

    margin: 0; /* top right bottom left */

    height: 100%;

direction:rtl

}

Open in new window

Generally, use the HTML tag for Hebrew pages:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="he" lang="he" dir="rtl">
Or any variant.
This way the page is rendered correctly and no CSS 'tweaks' are required.
Works in all browsers.
