This might work for unicode strings:

<?php
$s
= iconv("ISO-8859-8", "UTF-8", hebrev(iconv("UTF-8", "ISO-8859-8", $s)));
?>

hebrev() changes the flow of any Hebrew characters in a string from right-to-left to left-to-right.

It only affects characters within the range of ASCII 224-251 (except for punctuation).

The hebrev function changes the string order to RTL.
Use fribidi_log2vis insted if you need LTR text direction
$text = fribidi_log2vis($text,FRIBIDI_LTR, FRIBIDI_CHARSET_CP1255)

From my experience in using hebrev text in HTML, I prefer using

<html dir="rtl" lang="he">

over mentioned PHP functions. It works perfectly with IE 6 ... needs some tweaking in Mozilla though.

I found this site http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/international/web/tips/align.html useful.
