Description Rick Block 2005-11-24 16:09:37 UTC
In the past few days the listing of categories for an article has appeared incorrectly using Safari (on a Mac OS X).  Looking at the HTML 
source, I assume the problem is the bi-di indicators (perhaps recently added).  I suspect this is actually a Safari bug - one example, the 
categories for display as "Categories: Geography of Spain | | NavarreMunicipalities in Spain" 
rather than "Categories: Geography of Spain | Navarre | Municipalities in Spain".  I'll figure out how to report this to Apple as a bug, but in 
the mean time could you change the formatting code so the bi-di indicators are only added if they're necessary (perhaps assume left to 
right, and add only if they would change this)?
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-11-24 20:37:29 UTC
Works fine for me, Safari 2.0.2 (416.12) on 10.4.3.

(Note that the bidi indicators explicitly *say* left-to-right.)
