+[Authoring HTML: Handling Right-to-left Scripts](http://www.w3.org/TR/i18n-html-tech-bidi/)
+might be useful reading.
+
+In [modern browsers](http://caniuse.com/css-sel2) (i.e. not IE6) it
+should be possible to make CSS conditional on any attribute, not
+just class, so you could maybe do something like this:
+
+    /* ikiwiki's existing CSS */
+    .sidebar {
+        float: right;
+        margin-left: 4px;
+    }
+
+    /* new */
+    html[dir=\"rtl\"] .sidebar {
+        float: left;
+        margin-left: 0px;
+        margin-right: 4px;
+    }
+
+If you contributed a patch for `style.css` to make markup like this
+\"just work\", I'd be happy to review it. (`notebox` could use the
+same technique).
