Hmm.  I went to some lengths to test that on IE7, IE8 and some other
browsers, but couldn't replicate it.  I used a modified version of tests
20-22 at
http://www.w3.org/International/tests/tests-html-css/tests-bidi-chrome/gener
ate?test=20

 

If we do find repeatable evidence of the problem, we can add the information
to http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/uanotes.html

 

Cheers,

RI

This is a comment on the externalized text howto (at
<http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#externalized_text>
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#externalized_text ). 

As far as I remember, putting LRE/RLE and PDF around a Javascript message
gives the required effect in Internet Explorer only if the message is
displayed on one line.  If the message spans multiple lines, only the first
line is affected.  At least this is what happens for me with MS IE7 under
WinXP SP2.  I have not checked what happens with other browsers and other
platforms. 

This bug/feature does not apply to titles and tooltips which are always
displayed as a single line.

I have implemented the feedback received on this document in the editor's
version at 
 <http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/>
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/

I have also, after further discussions, made some further changes as
follows:

1. changed Best Practices to Techniques throughout (and just removed from
the title)

2. created 3 new techniques
 <http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#scrollbar>
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#scrollbar
 <http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#iso_encoding>
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#iso_encoding
 <http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#externalized_text>
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#externalized_text

3. redesigned  <http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/uanotes>
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/uanotes and changed the
links after each technique so that there is only one now, pointing to a
section in the uanotes document.  The uanotes document contains a short
summary of any browser-specific note and pointers to tests and results for
more information.  It also contains links to the appropriate section or
sections of the techniques index so you can find more information. This
document still needs some more work.


If you have any comments on the above, please send to this list.  Barring
showstoppers, I'd like to publish the final version in about a week to ten
days.

Thanks.
RI
