Description Rotem Liss 2006-03-28 13:31:45 UTC
In Hebrew, in the link to the page in "pagefooter", we get something like that:

for the main page. I suggest to leave the link (href) as it is, but to change
the view, like in my patch I will submit here in a moment. Then it will be:עמוד ראשי

As it should be. By the way, I've also included "dir=ltr", for all the URLs are LTR.

Patch for REL1_5

Please check in also this - it is a very minor change, and it works very good
in REL1_5.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-03-28 19:16:20 UTC
This is in general not very reliable; a printed URL may contain characters which are hard
to type or hard to distinguish, making it difficult or impossible for a typical user to make
any use of the printed URL.

Additionally some characters have special meaning or are invalid in URLs and would need
to be escaped anyway for it to be valid.

An argument against showing "FUULPAGENAME" can be found at
Bug 2383: uncertain about ambiguosity in mixed LTR and RTL environment
Brion stated:
Bidirectional text display is out of our control. See:

Teoretically a title may contain also nonprintable characters.
However the characters from
[[he:user:Gangleri/bugzilla/ report / 04045 / א ב / a b]]
[[he:user:Gangleri/bugzilla/ report / 04045 / a b / א ב]]
could be typed character by character.

Typical homoglyphs are Yiddish "tsvey-vovn" "װ" versus two vov "וו" depending on
the selected font.

I assume that the position last character of {{FULLPAGENAMEE}} should be
"''secured''"  if it's directionality is "neutral" in respect to the
bidirectional algorithm; else it might be postioned in the "wrong" place.

At the url from below the "%" character is positioned to the far right. Pleople
from the "LTR world" might expect it at the far left.
