    Here's a web page that has no problem displaying classic Mongolian
    script as right-to-left (even when embedded into Latin text):

    The web page author introduces the page with a note that the Mongolian
    script is being displayed RTL so as to be in harmony with the Arabic
    script display.

    RTL directionality is a natural for the classic Mongolian script.
    Chinese is often written vertically. How does Chinese act when
    it's embedded with Arabic?

    Best regards,
