Description Dan Jacobson 2006-11-16 15:49:25 UTC
Gentlemen, are you sure you want to use this Unicode character in e.g.,
$ w3m -dump http://localhost/mediawiki/index.php?title=Special:Categories\&uselang=en|less
 1. 000.2500 <U+200E>(1 member)
 2. 000.2750 <U+200E>(1 member)
 3. 000.2900 <U+200E>(1 member)
 4. 000.2950 <U+200E>(1 member)
and many other places?  None of my familiar Debian components show
more than distress symbols (? less(1), uxterm above), if anything at
all. gucharmap(1) says
[not a printable character]
Wait, isn't that for like switching out of Arabic bidi mode?
I see, LEFT-TO-RIGHT MARK sounded good, but you were probably looking
for an arrow or something.
Anyways, do choose a printing character.

That's a bidi override for bidi-safety.
