Description Tim Starling 2011-05-14 17:02:37 UTC
Please introduce RTL aliases for HTML tags such as <br/>, and for tag hook names such as <ref>. This could be implemented similar to the existing aliases for &rlm; (רלמ, رلم), or by localisation with MagicWord, similar to how the parser function hooks are localised.

A survey of users of RTL wikis found this issue to be the number one concern for editing MediaWiki articles in RTL languages.
