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).
