7.5.3. Examples of Usage [http://dev.w3.org/2006/waf/widgets/#examples-of-usage]

Comment: 

The first example displays incorrectly (eg. the angle bracket points the wrong way and is in the wrong place).  Replace the appropriate bit of code with the following and this should look ok:

&lt;name short="آب و هوا"&gt;&#x200E;
آب و هوا برنامه&lt;/name&gt;



The third example seems to have rather strange ordering in the Persian text and English, and the English word seems like an odd one to have in English.  How about the following?

&lt;widget xmlns="http://www.w3.org/ns/widgets"&gt;

   &lt;name short="Weather"&gt;
    Weather! a totally awesome application!
   &lt;/name&gt;


   &lt;name short="آب و هوا" xml:lang="fa" dir="rtl"&gt;
   &lt;span dir="ltr" xml:lang="en"&gt;Weather!&lt;/span&gt; برنامه واقعا بزرگ
   &lt;/name&gt;

&lt;/widget&gt;


Hope that helps,
RI
