Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-05-01 07:02:29 UTC

See [[yi:Image:Yi wikipedia - histoty - monobook.jpg]].

The image was made using Mozilla Firefox, Monobook Skin and the user interface
in Yiddish.

Please use same configuration and load .
You probably will see that you can not compare "directly" with the 3rd and 4th

BTW: With some skills and knowledge about the [[commons:Image:Tower of
Hanoi.gif|Towers of Hanoi]] you can "shift" to some of the comparisons you can
not select directly.

I know this is one of the most difficult bugs I met. Thanks for all your support
and valuable help. Here the text from that image:

'''bug report'''

generation of links fails if rtl and ltr characters are mixed together with
aditional special characters as brackets, MediaWiki control characters are etc

if the selector boxes are included in those ernoneous links compare would be

the bug maight relate to improper span generation or it maight relate to
improper order call of these functions

Sorry for this [[yi:user:gangleri]]. Regards Reinhardt
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-05-03 04:42:05 UTC
Please compare "actual" rendering in


Note: "actual" means now. If the bug is fixed and you follow the links you can
NOT see this bug nay more.

The problem I see with this is scrambled rendering in IE6-SP1 & Firefox 1.0.4.
In particular, with Firefox the clickable area for some of the old article
revision overlap the radio buttons,
and with both browsers the radio buttons jump around as selected.

Like bug 2057, using the keyboard to tab through the active parts of the page
eventually allows selection.

Also, the tab sequence is out-of-order, with the "last" links sequenced
separately, but this is a separate issue also affecting LTR wikis, so I'll open
a new report for it.
Comment 4 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-09 09:41:55 UTC
workaround: use RTL characters in [[wikipedia:yiMediaWiki:Last]]
droped "Severity" to trivial
(eventualy follor [[en:Wikipedia:Bypass your cache]])

changing dependencies:
this bug should disapear if pages is fixed according to bug 4066
Comment 6 Malafaya 2009-02-10 17:13:34 UTC
Is this bug still active? By the tests I've made, it seems corrected.
Comment 7 Chad H. 2010-04-16 15:33:50 UTC
I agree. I can't replicate these issues anymore, so closing this as FIXED (it probably was fixed at some point in the past 5 years). Feel free to reopen if you can replicate this again.
