Unfortunaltely, I do not  write offten in arabic and i'm not familiar with
arabic html stuff !!  However, I tried different pages and some of them
as you said do not have specific indication to direction, some use
 (lang="ar" xml:lang="ar" dir="rtl"). 

For me toggling fonts in eww is a good solution. It worked well and have the
advantage of displaying good fonts.

Thanks for all,


P.S. Eli closed the bug.
