Hebrew typography question
0

Hi,

In latin alphabet languages, aligning text to the left is the norm, right-align (in brochures, websites etc) is unconventional, but not incorrect.
Is the situation similar (but reversed) in Hebrew, or is left-align actually incorrect.

Similarly, in a web form, placing the labels to the right of the form fields would be unusual, but acceptable. What's the situation in Hebrew?

Thanks
Steve

Maybe you could try to repost your question in the Hebrew Typography & Type Design section of the forum:

Ah, that would be sensible...
I didn't even realise that there was such a section.
I know now & have posted there.
Thanks
