In general, please provide a link that allows other people to reproduce the problem and describe the problem in the task summary. See https://mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug

(Also, this sounds unrelated to #TextExtracts as this is about any text when editing a wiki page, not about the page previews.)

Aklapper renamed this task from Numbered list on urwiki to Numbered list on urwiki should use localized dot ۔ instead of ..Oct 22 2017, 5:00 PM

Urdu Wikipedia pages include <html class="client-nojs" lang="ur" dir="rtl"> so your web browser knows the language of that page.
When you enter # in wikitext, it is converted to <ol> in HTML.
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/list-style-type lists -moz-urdu but has no information about browser support in the compatibility table.
So maybe MediaWiki could somehow add -moz-urdu to the output when converting the wikitext into HTML to be displayed in your browser (hence this might be valid task), but it would still be up to your browser whether your browser can interpret that.

Aklapper renamed this task from Numbered list on urwiki should use localized dot ۔ instead of . to Numbered list on urwiki should use localized dot ۔ instead of . (via "list-style-type"?).Oct 22 2017, 5:12 PM

Any other wiki which uses localised dot in numbered list?
