Trying to get text to grow to the left in a webbrowser control.

I am trying to use a web browser like a label to try and display text.  I need this text to be displayed right to left.

The syntax that I am using is webbrowser1.DocumentText="<p dir=""RTL"">" & "Hello world" & "</p>".  

Now this seems to work except the only character in the string that is displayed is "H".  I think that the text is growing to the right (out of view) instead of to the left.  How do I make the text grow to the left?

You will want to show us the rendered html and not your asp code. You can always back out the answer to asp.  In this case, if we just take your example as html it works. The code is below and working sample at http://jsbin.com/eCiMAgek/1/edit?html,output

Your problem will have to do with other css or possibly js that are manipulating the output.  If you can create a demo page and a link for us to see, we can help.  Just a simple example with the one word as you have but include all of your css and js code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>JS Bin</title>
</head>
<body>
  <p dir="RTL">Hello world</p>  

</body>
</html>
