If that's the problem: the PDF serializer has no BIDI support
at all: no rl writing direction, no character reordering, no
fo:bidi support. This means rendering arabic text is almost
out of the question, with the possible exception of snippets
with blocks which don't have more than one line and which
can be reversed beforehand by some other means (which may be
complicated by inline markup and numbers which have to be
rendered lr instead of rl).
