Using Boosted for right-to-left website presentation

Every release of Boosted ships with a dedicated right-to-left (RTL) version.


To get a RTL version of a boosted webpage you only need to replace the regular boosted.css file with the RTL counterpart boosted-rtl.css. Please ensure to add dir="rtl" attribute to your <html> tag.

Helvetica Neue

Boosted RTL uses the Arabic version of Helvetica Neue in lieu of the PanEuropean Helvetica Neue. It also covers the Basic Latin alphabet.
