    here is my code :
     <telerik:radeditor saveinfile="true" OnClientSubmit="OnClientSubmit"
                                           direction="rtl" style="width: 590px; direction: rtl;
                                    text-align: right" enableembeddedskins="true" id="RadEditor1" onclientload="EditerTabindex" OnClientCommandExecuting="OnClientCommandExecuting"
                                    runat="server" editmodes="Design, Preview,html" newlinebr="false"  stripformattingonpaste="Span,MSWordRemoveAll">
                                   <ClientEvents OnKeyPress="AlphabetOnly" />
                                             <telerik:EditorCssFile Value="../Template/Resources/css/Editor.css" />
                                <telerik:EditorToolGroup Tag="NewGroup">
                                        <telerik:EditorTool Name="Cut"   />
                                    <telerik:EditorTool Name="Copy" />
                                    <telerik:EditorTool Name="Paste" />
                                      <telerik:EditorTool Name="Underline" />
                                    <telerik:EditorTool Name="Bold" />
                                           <telerik:EditorTool Name="Italic" />
                                    <telerik:EditorTool Name="FontName"  />
                                    <%--<telerik:EditorTool Name="FontSize"/>--%>
                                     <telerik:EditorTool Name="RealFontSize" Text="Size" />
                                    <telerik:EditorTool  Name="ForeColor"  />
                          <telerik:EditorTool Name="BackColor" />
                                      <telerik:EditorTool Name="RTL" />
                                     <telerik:EditorTool Name="InsertUnorderedList" />
                                     <telerik:EditorTool Name="InsertOrderedList" />
                                     <telerik:EditorTool Name="Redo" />
                                      <telerik:EditorTool Name="Undo" />

    javascript :

      <script type="text/javascript">
               function OnClientSubmit(editor) {
         "FormatStripper", { value: "WORD_ALL" });

                   //            alert(editor.get_html(true));
               function EditerTabindex(editor) {

                   editor.get_document() = "right";
                   var iframe = editor.get_contentAreaElement();
                   iframe.setAttribute("tabIndex", "2");
                   iframe.setAttribute("Direction", "rtl");
                   var buttonsHolder = $get(editor.get_id() + "Top");
                   var buttons = buttonsHolder.getElementsByTagName("A");
                   for (var i = 0; i < buttons.length; i++) {
                       var a = buttons[i];
                       a.tabIndex = -1;
                       a.tabStop = false;

     <script type="text/javascript">
         function OnClientCommandExecuting(editor, args) {
             var name = args.get_name();
             var val = args.get_value();
             if (name == "Paste") {

         function AlphabetOnly(sender, eventArgs) {
             var c = eventArgs.get_keyCode();
             if ((c < 65) || (c > 90 && c < 97) || (c > 122))

    I investigated the issue and found that it is a browser behavior which can be reproduced in a standard editable iframe element as shown in the following video:

    I noticed that if you edit a full HTML page with XHTML DOCTYPE in RadEditor the behavior becomes better but sometimes this problem pops up again.
