I assume that by saying "Set Arabic in the configuration" you mean CKEditor configuration.

If that is the case then please try typing "}in{behind" in below container used on standard HTML5 page and you will get same result.

<div style="margin:20px; border:1px solid black; width:500px; height:200px;" contenteditable="true" dir="rtl">	


If however you write "{in}behind" you will get correct but mirrored result.

The bottom line is that you should not use LTR languages in RTL containers because you will get strange results. What is more those results are given by the browser and not by the editor.

Many thanks :D I managed to fix it in chrome and Firefox by simply adding an invisible Arabic character after {in} so it worked, but for IE, it did not work.

I don't think this is a fix but rather a lucky hack. Like I have said before - this is something controlled by the browser and you should not use LTR languages in RTL containers because you will get such weird results.
