Safari doesn't deal well with recent change to catlinks listing for bi-di characters

Description:
In the past few days the listing of categories for an article has appeared incorrectly using Safari (on a Mac OS X). Looking at the HTML
source, I assume the problem is the bi-di indicators (perhaps recently added). I suspect this is actually a Safari bug - one example, the
categories for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pamplona display as "Categories: ‪Geography of Spain‬ | | ‪Navarre‪Municipalities in Spain‬"
rather than "Categories: ‪Geography of Spain‬ | ‪Navarre‬ | ‪Municipalities in Spain". I'll figure out how to report this to Apple as a bug, but in
the mean time could you change the formatting code so the bi-di indicators are only added if they're necessary (perhaps assume left to
right, and add only if they would change this)?

Works fine for me, Safari 2.0.2 (416.12) on 10.4.3.

(Note that the bidi indicators explicitly *say* left-to-right.)
