#2096 closed defect (fixed)

RTL names in LTR locale shown funny

Description

Names in right-to-left languages (eg Hebrew) are displayed weirdly when shown using left-to-right locale (eg English).

Example: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/34621917 see the page title, which is normally displayed in the form "name (number)" but is shown as unusual "number) name)" in such cases. Tag name=value looks ok, probably because it isn't interpolated, or just because there is nothing to the right of the name that would be moved to the left.

Note that i am not sure how it is correct for RTL languages, but it doesn't look right in my (LTR) locale.

Might be remotely related to #1930

I think this may be a browser issue - if I fetch that page with a command line tool the text looks correct in my terminal but when I look at it in Firefox it has all gone wrong...

I think this was fixed by the recent RTL work - certainly it looks OK now.

Oh hang on I misread - this is about the title bar, not the page heading,

This looks like it is fixed now - it's harder to find an example now, as we show name:en if there is one but looking at http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1803010508 the title bar and the name in the side bar seem to be the same.
