screen dump will follow
This is a bug relared to IE (possibly [[MediaWiki:Monobook.css]] etc.).
You can reproduce this bug creating an account similar to
replacing "_4" with another value.
The purpose of this report is both to find a workaround and also to know what to
prevent / what to *recommend* to the users about creating LTR accounts in RTL
wikis and viceversa.
A *global* requirement as "use LTR user names at LTR wikis and RTL user names at
RTL wikis" does not reflect the practice at the WikiMedia foundation wiki's.
best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]
P. S. I did not test all accounts from
wit IE. Some of them will probably behave the same.

screen dump for bug 04225
If a fix / workaround can be found it should handle also:
Bug 2341: BiDi: missing space between user and user talk links if user name is
RTL only or BiDi
marking this bug as depending of
Bug 4232: BiDi: request for a "BiDi balancing function" to avoid BiDi
overlapping between objects
It is probably a site effect of using unusual user names. Never experiend this
problem with "normal" / "more common" user names.
removed direct dependency to bug 745
Bug 745: RTL/bidirectional issues (tracking)
No updates, closing.
