On Hebrew Wikipedia (http://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/) the
usual image template
[[:PictureFileName.jpg|left|thumb|250px|
]] no longer work under Firefox 0.8 since the
upgrade. Instead of aligning the picture to the left of
the text it puts the image on the same line as the text
with no aligment.

THhe URL for the test page seems to be cut off above.

I hope it will work again here:

Anyway, all the text is align to the right- none of it is aligned left as it should.
I am attaching a screen shot.

This is with the latest version of Firefox on linux:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040919 Firefox/0.10

Hebrew is a right-to-left language, so text always starts on the right.
The attributes "right" and "left" of a thumbnail are about placing the
thumbnail box to the right or left of the big text area - not about
placing the caption of the thumbnail to the right or left margin of the
thumbnail box.

The situation seems unchanged with MediaWiki v1.4.5 : images on he.wikipedia.org
default to being left-aligned and captions are always right-aligned, both of
which are as expected for a RTL language.

Resolving as mysteriously fixed between June & September last year.
