Mixed directionality of AFT
Closed, ResolvedPublic


AFT draws user interface elements into the content area and should thus take some extra care because it needs to operate in mixed directionality environments.

I had to add this:

To make it behave a bit nicer when the (ltr) content has right floating elements.
Example:,_Afghanistan?uselang=fa (with applied fix, so use your inspector to check out the original situation).

Version: master
Severity: normal

Thanks, Derk-Jan, good point.

We'll look into your recommendation shortly.

If you submit more bugs in the future, I recommend you add 'aftv5-1.5' in the Keyword field, which will bring them up to our attention for this phase.

Well I wouldn't recommend this solution, it is just what was needed to improve the current situation. There is probably a better solution that will work for both LTR and RTL content, but it requires a bit of experimentation.
