No. I want this:
   |name2 1234 catag2 ED-GNOL-YREV\|
   |NOITPIRCS                      |

And again, the same in R2L direction:
   |ED-GNOL-YREV name2 1234 catag2\|
   |                      NOITPIRCS|

And the logical text "VERY-LONG-DESCRIPTION name2 1234 catag2"
would be rendered (R2L paragraph):
   |                      34 catag2|

This how it is done in Hebrew newspapers and in HTML, and this is how
Hebrew readers are used to it (of course newspapers and HTML don't
breaks words, but that is the only difference).

look for "nutrition and physical" and see how the English title is
broken into 2 lines and is right justified.

I wish more users who uses Hebrew routinely will take part in this
