Description Amir E. Aharoni 2010-12-02 19:24:12 UTC
Several language names of Wikimedia projects have parentheses in their names: Беларуская (тарашкевіца), Norsk (nynorsk), Norsk (bokmål). In RTL wikis the parentheses are displayed incorrectly.

Specifying direction for all languages names is probably not needed, because they usually don't have punctuation, but at least these language names should be marked as "direction: ltr, text-align: right".

(keywords to make this bug easily findable: interwiki bidi rtl interlanguage)

They are displayed correctly for me. Please give an example where they do not work.

Notice how Беларуская (тарашкевица) is written.

Firefox 3.6.13 on XP.

Used the same fix as used on some of the languages already, fixed in r79896.
