Description Brion Vibber 2004-09-18 20:56:13 UTC
commonPrint.css contains lovely bits like this:

#content {
    text-align: left;

This is presumably meant to counteract the full-justified text option, however it makes printed output of Hebrew, 
Arabic, and such rather incorrect.

Either the alignment forcing should be removed, or changed to something that works for LTR and RTL, or RTL should 
include an explicit override the other way.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-09-19 04:48:59 UTC
Setting 'justify' instead of 'left' solves this issue as well as bug 483.
Comment 2 Gabriel Wicke 2006-03-24 08:42:33 UTC
The rule above is gone, there's no text-alignment other than center set in
commonPrint.css anymore.
