Punctuation problem in right-to-left text edit

You wrote: "How do I fix that RtoL problem with the period at the end?" The issue is explained here [1]. Your Arabic text is in a Web page that has left-to-right direction, so the punctuation (which is an "Other Neutrals" character) behaves according to LTR rules. If you go into Chrome's developer tools (or similar) and apply the CSS style direction: rtl then the punctuation works as expected (and the entire sentence aligns with the right-hand border instead of the left-hand one).

Quite what you have to do to fix this in normal wikitext rather than HTML/CSS, I don't know. Equinox 15:34, 9 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

let's try this:

It looks like {{lang|ar|...}} fixes it but for some reason if I use desktop view in mobile safari all letters are rendered in independent form and it looks ugly. (That's an issue with any use of the template with this mode and browser combo though.)

Well that's odd. On mobile safari in mobile view it does nothing. In desktop view the rtl is fixed but all characters render as independent. Radixcc 📞 16:45, 9 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
