the problem is described at
the relevant attachments at that bugzilla test installation are broken so I will post the minimal testcases here.
A solution to reduce the BiDi readability which splits items (in this case the contributor names which contains spaces) is to embed each user name in « <span style="white-space: nowrap;" > » blocks.
This would be easy to implement and is more elegant as listing the contributors line by line as proposed in
best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
A more general enhancement request was posted at
B u g: 402155 – The graphical output generator should support a BiDi-output paramer in order to facilitate BiDi reading

if you open this attachment and resize the window some contributor names get split over multiple lines

if you open this atachment and resize the window each contributor name will be in one line only

Screenshot of the user link that is split
I attached a screenshot so you can see what the problem was. RTL user links were split and displayed incorrectly when wrapped to the next line.
I think this may be problematic as it will prevent legitimate wrapping of long names.
