wrong display of bracket ")" in RTL languages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


"If the mouse-cursor hits a wikilink, a small box opens near the link and shows the lemma the link leads to. There is a problem with interwikilinks in languages written from right to left (Hebrew, Arab), if the lemma of the aim ends with a bracket. The closing bracket at the end is displayed as opening bracket in the beginning. Example: The German lemma ''[ Zug (Eisenbahn)]'' is displayed in Arab [قطار] or Hebrew [רכבת] wikipedia in the box as ''(Zug (Eisenbahn'' ."

if not a browser bug, it is a general mediawiki issue. Nothing the wikidata team can fix.
