I don't suppose there is any support, advice or tips for using tiptip on Arabic sites (or sites displayed with the RTL parameter)?

We are using tiptip on the people icons here:

The positioning isn't quite right, and left arrows show on the right and vice versa.

If you switch the page to English you can see the better positioning:

Thank you

    Actually, this was easier to fix than I assumed. In case, anyone else is looking for solution...

    These additions to tipTip.css seemed to do the trick for me:

    body.rtl #tiptip_holder.tip_left #tiptip_arrow {
    right:-12px; }

    body.rtl #tiptip_holder.tip_top #tiptip_arrow_inner {
    margin-left:auto; margin-right:42px; }
