autocomplete broken in arabic scripts
The problem occurs on the ItemView page, when selecting a site link page, and anywhere else the highlighting is used.
For Arabic language scripts, I think bolding is unnecessary for autocomplete.
Use <b> but style it appropriately, or use <strong>.
<b> or <strong> cause the problem and it's not a solution.
That's a problem with MediaWiki in general, it has the same behaviour on the ar.wikipedia.
Similar issue was fixed for Indic languages in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/18247/ in ULS

Err got confused. The above may be related but doesnt really fix the same problem. This bug is possibly a duplicate of bug 33242
It happens in regular search windows on Wikipedia, too. Moving to MediaWiki core. I wonder whether there's a dupe of it somewhere.
Of course it's a dupe - I should have read previous comments.
