Description Dirk Beetstra 2006-11-12 15:33:20 UTC
In Opera (version 9.01, build 8552, Sun java 1.5, Win32 XP), when a line with Hebrew text is shown in 
the watchlist (maybe these specific characters), it 'breaks' at the end of the Hebrew text, resulting in 
the next line to be formatted wrongly.  In the history of the page, the formatting is OK.  

What I see, begins with a normal line (no triangle, a 'm', the time, "Silicon"), that ends after the 
Hebrew text (after the last character here: צורן), so you don't see the closing ")", the next line 
begins with: 10:24, a tab, the triangle (so these are wrong way around), and then resumes normally with 
the next item "Organic chemistry".

The source for the line in the watchlist (with the item before it, and the 2 items after it) and the 
line in the history are shown below (sorry, they are a bit long):

Line in watchlist:

As far as I understand, Unicode standard says the <br /> doesn't break the
direction block, though IE didn't hear about that. Therefore, this behavior is
like that also in Gecko (Mozilla, Firefox): it's not a browser bug, but a
MediaWiki bug.

It seems that <br /> should not be used in the enhanced recent changes view, and
<div> should be used instead. Alternatively, a direction mark could be appended
to the end of the line, though I'd recommend against this way.
Comment 3 Dirk Beetstra 2006-11-12 15:57:54 UTC
Addendum: page displays indeed correctly in my IE (6.0.2900.2180)

*** Bug 10028 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 5 Ral315 2008-03-01 19:54:34 UTC
Bug 8996 is a similar problem; however, that one specifically deals with one RTL character, the right-to-left override, that causes each subsequent word to appear backwards.
Comment 6 Nicolas Dumazet 2008-03-24 16:45:28 UTC
From what I can tell, the current watchlists do not use <br />s anymore, and I can't reproduce this bug on my local wiki.

Isn't fixed ?

Screenshot, Firefox 2, fr.wp : Worksforme.

Just tested on fr.wikipedia.org : It is no more a bug; I'm marking it as worksforme
Comment 8 Brion Vibber 2008-03-24 18:36:36 UTC
Changing from WORKSFORME to FIXED. :) Recent move to table structure would have been the fix here.
