RTL text in an LTR wiki breaks appearance of Special:Recentchanges
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: alon

It seems RTL and LTR tags are not correctly applied to article titles appearing
in Special:Recentchanges. [[commons:Image:Wiktionary issues with RTL
text.png|This image]] shows one such case in the Spanish Wiktionary. The
DIR="RTL" attribute should be used to frame RTL text in such cases.

Version: unspecified
Severity: minor

Fixed in r16501 by adding direction marks between the page name and the number
of changes, and between the user name and the number of his changes (to also
avoid problems of English user names). I think this makes the enhanced recent
changes view usable in RTL view, at last.
