Screen dump will follow.
As far as I know RTL wikis do not display icons in Monobook skin. This includes
the user icon, link icon, mailto icon, irc icon etc.
However if you log in to a LTR wiki and select a RTL user interface the user
icon will not disapear. It will be misadjusted.
If it is not possible to adjust it properly it would be better to hide it. I
have no clue if Monobooks and / or Java have control over / would kwnow
- if the content language is LTR or RTL
- if the selected user interface is LTR or RTL
See related bugs:
bug 2341: missing space between user and user talk links if user name is RTL only
Please add dependencies on browser specific tracking bugs if you can identify these.
Thanks in advance for all your efforts!

also, u try to fix the bug or make just add bug to another bug!?
I'm still looking for answers :)
I'm not seeing this bug in Firefox 3 at
Let's keep this bug restricted to the user icon only, and keep bug 16502 for the external link icons. They seem to be entirely different problems.
