Medium should respect right-to-left languages

This petition had 17,043 supporters is a fascinating publishing platform. Yet, four years after being launched, it still doesn't support right-to-left languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, and Persian.

It is possible to input text in these languages, but the templates do not recognize anything but left-to-right scripts, thus Medium fails to properly align or layout right-to-left text.

This is very easy to fix, and it benefits both sides.
