Hallo!

screen dump will follow
*notes*

  • this bug may be related to particular browsers only, please add additional

dependencies from tracking bugs if necessary

  • I found the bug using: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US;

rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20051012 Netscape/8.0.4
Build number: 20051012

  • this bug may be solved by changing / fixing *default* "MediaWiki:Monobook.css"

configurations

http://test.wikipedia.jp/ is a test wiki with content language 'ja'

I logged in in different browsers as

http://test.wikipedia.jp/user:%D7%92%D7%90%D6%B7%D7%A0%D7%92%D7%9C%D7%A2%D7%A8%D7%99
(גאַנגלערי) using user interface 'he'

The distance between the tabs where

  • OK when the 'en' user interface was selected
  • "squeezed" when the 'he' user interface was selected; depending on the page I

reviewed it was quite "messy"; tray existing pages and non existing pages as
http://test.wikipedia.jp/user:%D7%92

It would be nice to have enough space between the tabs regardles if the selected
user interface is LTR or LTR type.
It might be possible that more *default* RTL "MediaWiki:Monobook.css" must be
changed.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Internet Explorer looks fine.

For Internet Explorer the location of the icon user.gif from
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/wikipedia/phase3/skins/monobook/user.gif
is misplaced.
