Replace the Unicode arrows in wikidiff2 with a neutral symbol and add CSS classes for later styling
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

From test results in T176217 with RTL languages we decided on changing the arrow symbols in the C++ library to something neutral and do the arrow like styling in a later step with CSS so that it can address the RTL layout.

  • arrows should be replaced with the ( MEDIUM BLACK CIRLCE U+26AB )
  • a tags should get classes, I suggest something like mw-diff-movedpara-rhs and mw-diff-movedpara-lhs
