Description Santiago Matamoros 2005-04-03 14:31:18 UTC
In the german wikipedia the cursor in the input field looks strange.
The cursor seems to have a little dot on the left side, almost looking like a cross.
It occours at least in all versions of mozilla firefox from 0.5 to 1.0.1.
I was not able to reproduce it in IE or Opera. I never saw this on any other
site (including Wikipedia in other languages). 
Is this a browser bug, a stylesheet bug or even inteded?

Not a bug; this indicates writing direction and will sometimes be displayed when editing 
unicode text. It's not under our control anyway; it's either an operating system GUI library 
or browser feature.
