Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2007-12-05 04:56:05 UTC
Dear friends,

the problem is described at
http://landfill.bugzilla.org/gangleri/show_bug.cgi?id=3304#c0 and
http://landfill.bugzilla.org/gangleri/show_bug.cgi?id=3304#c1

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
http://landfill.bugzilla.org/gangleri/show_bug.cgi?id=3304#c0 

best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

A more general enhancement request was posted at
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=402155
B u g: 402155 – The graphical output generator should support a BiDi-output paramer in order to facilitate BiDi reading

Created attachment 4405 [details]
bug_landfill_bugzilla_003304_·_BiDi_readability_problem_·_01_02.html

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

Can't really reproduce

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.
Comment 7 DieBuche 2011-07-12 15:46:20 UTC
Awesome
Comment 8 Brion Vibber 2011-07-12 17:36:05 UTC
I think this may be problematic as it will prevent legitimate wrapping of long names.

Alternate suggestion on CR -- http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/91966#c19485

Used unicode-bidi: embed; in r92011.
