Description:
complete bug summary: "properly display characters with directionality neutral if uselang=foobar is using the opposite directionality "then the wiki***"

Hi! The complete bug report is written at a live wiki:
http://en.wikipedia.org/?oldid=492307285#bugzilla

the test url is
http://he.wikipedia.org/?curid=172045&uselang=en

explanations: the page [[he:אהרון נימצוביץ']] has as last title character an apostrophe. In the actual bugzilla LTR environment and also when "uselang=foobar" is used where foobar is a language using a LTR script the apostrophe at the end of the title is represented rightmost while you may look at / read the article text and will see the apostrophe leftmost.

It should be possible to fix such BiDirectional issues using proper "span" / "div" etc. embedding. Please avoid the usage of BiDirectional characters.

Best regards Reinhardt

P.S. this bug blocks Bug 749. I was not here for a long ime. Please set the proper values of whatever required field.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
