Mark directionality of interlanguage links
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Several language names of Wikimedia projects have parentheses in their names: Беларуская (тарашкевіца), Norsk (nynorsk), Norsk (bokmål)‬. In RTL wikis the parentheses are displayed incorrectly.

Specifying direction for all languages names is probably not needed, because they usually don't have punctuation, but at least these language names should be marked as "direction: ltr, text-align: right".

(keywords to make this bug easily findable: interwiki bidi rtl interlanguage)
