The right-to-left (RTL) unicode handling is messed up
in the Aramaic (Assyrian Neo-Aramaic) Wikipedia, especially
on pages such as http://arc.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:RecentChanges
In some places, parentheses are mismatched or out of order.
Today (May 30, 2008), this site runs MediaWiki 1.13alpha, rev. 35573
I experienced this problem in Firefox 3.0 beta 5 on Linux.
I have no idea if it can be different on other platforms.
I have not provided any screenshot.
The more mature Arabic and Persian localizations work better,
so simply adding ?uselang=ar to the URL is a good workaround,
The problem becomes even worse for logged in users who sets
RecentChanges. But the workaround is still good.
Maybe the way Arabic and Persian handles RTL should automatically
be inherited by all related writing systems?
This is probably because there is English mixed everywhere between. Someone(s) should set up and start localising MediaWiki for it.
