I have an online help (.chm) file that has been translated to Arabic. It opens in a tri-pane window with the TOC in the left pane and the contents in the right pane. The text appears correctly (right to left) but now I'm being asked if I can mirror the GUI so that the TOC appears in the right pane and the contents in the left pane, the navigation buttons (such as Back, Forward, etc.) appear on the right, the minimize, maximize, close buttons appear on the left, etc. In other word, change the GUI so that all the elements are right-to-left reversed.

Has anyone done this successfully? I've been told that Microsoft HTML workshop does not support this, but I've been unable to find confirmation one way or the other on their website.

Thanks for any help or advise you can give me.
