Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-29 20:46:45 UTC
Hallo!

screen dump follows

The screen dump shows [[wiktionary:yi:special:Watchlist/edit]] viewed with
Mozilla Firefox, Netscape and Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer shows a space between the checkboxes and the titles. If you
look at the watchlist with Mozilla Firefox or Netscape you will *not* see the space.

*note* This might be a browser related issue or might be fixed changing
Monobook.css .

This behavior can be experienced also at other RTL wikis. See
[[wikipedia:ar:special:Watchlist/edit]] etc.

from Uri:
> This is almost certainly due to
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=121633. Margins
unfortunately don't work well on inline elements (such as the
checkbox) in RTL context.
Comment 3 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-12-01 09:13:20 UTC
The squeezing of chackboxes and text is a more general problem. Changed the
subject to reflect this.

compare the checkboxes using ?action=edit / &action=edit in
a) http://ur.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=test_foo_bar&action=edit
where both do *not* align properly
b) http://ar.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=test_foo_bar&action=edit
where 
http://ar.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Minoredit&action=edit
( [[ar:MediaWiki:Watchthis?action=edit]] ) has a fix but
http://ar.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Watchthis&action=edit
has *none*
c) http://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=test_foo_bar&action=edit
where *both*
http://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Minoredit&action=edit
and
http://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Watchthis&action=edit
have a fix
d) http://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=test_foo_bar&action=edit
where *both*
http://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Minoredit&action=edit
and
http://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Watchthis&action=edit
have a fix but the seccond is different

It should be possible to fix all RTL type "special:Watchlist/edit" as
[[ar:special:Watchlist/edit]] ... [[wiktionary:yi:special:Watchlist/edit]] in a
similar fashion using heading and / or trailing

alternative link to ilustrate the problems might be links from "sister projects"
where the workaround is not implemented yet:

screen dump showing some differencies using &#nnnn; versus UTF-8 characters in MediaWiki Messages

regarding comment 3 you may experience some differencies using &#nnnn; versus
UTF-8 characters in MediaWiki Messages

Text from the first example:
this example in Mozilla Firefox
url is http://yi.wikipedia.org/wiki/special:Upload
http://yi.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Watchthis contains
 זײַט אױפֿפּאַס 
http://yi.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Ignorewarnings contains
Ignore any warnings

Text from the second example:
this example in Mozilla Firefox after   is replaced with UTF-8
url is http://yi.wikipedia.org/wiki/special:Upload
http://yi.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Watchthis contains
זײַט אױפֿפּאַסן 
http://yi.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Ignorewarnings contains
Ignore any warnings

Hallo!

http://test.leuksman.com/view/FiverAlpha:Special_pages/BiDi/Watchlist
describes a way to fix [[ar:special:Watchlist/edit]] (login required).

Please note that
. ' ' . (isRTL() ? '‏' : '‎')
preceeds
$sk->makeLink( $t, $t ) .
