Subject: RTL direction attribute in SVG background image

Trying to use an SVG background image to an fo:block. The SVG contains Arabic text, which is RTL. I have set the direction attribute on the SVG element to RTL but it does not appear to be honoured. The output text is back to front.

The SVG looks like this:

<svg width="16cm" height="2cm" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:svg="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" direction="rtl">
  <text fill="#000000" x="8cm" y="1cm" font-size="1.5cm" font-family="Arabic Typesetting" text-anchor="middle"> </text>

I have it in a separate file at present and Im importing it as follows:

<fo:block keep-together.within-page="always" space-after="0.0cm" font-size="0.5cm" background-image="url('nonrunnerbanner-ar.svg')" border-bottom-width="0.02cm" border-bottom-color="#a59266" border-bottom-style="solid">


In the English version of this document, I am using an embedded base64 version of the SVG. I want to do the same here but I cant get it writing right to left.

Is there a way to get this text RTL, or do I need to resort to using an image instead?
