Description Huji 2013-07-26 19:10:40 UTC
On RTL wikis, the textbox where CAPTCHA is typed follows the directionality of the page (i.e. RTL). This is a problem because our CAPTCHAs are always left-to-right (English words, or the like).

Huji: Do you really use 1.19.2?
Can you provide a link where this problem can be seen?

If I understand correctly, it's in the core, though I may have missed something.
