Thanks for your hints Dan,
The problem is when I've trying to convert a RTL DocBook to the other
formats with tools like OpenJade's scripts or RedHat's xmlto (possibly
the last will fits on my needs, cause it's at least UTF-8 compatible!)
the `dir' attributes are omitted (or disabled) in the published docs.

Maybe I can solve that problem by implementing a RTL-based CSS to HTML
files, but in the case of PDF or PS files we can't make this patch-like
changes to published doc.

I think everything will be over when this tools internally supports RTL
subscripts in their source codes.

Now, I'm pleased to announce a suggestion to completing the support for
RTL subscripts in that tools (and of course, this is true when my guess
about missing supports for RTL will be correct).
