Mea culpa: I should have given ftang a testcase with justified text to check on Mac.

accept. I am not sure when will I work on this. I knew this problem and don't think need to fix that right away. I could be wrong. how many top sites in Hebrew/Arabic use align=justify ? Or any other reason I should fix this asap ? Otherwise, I will keep this is one item "to-be-hack" :)

>how many top sites in Hebrew/Arabic use align=justify ? Speaking of this- do we have an "offical" list of ME top sites? In general, I am seeing this problem more and more lately- this is esp. bad whith pages genarated from word
just went back to mozilla.org.il (mozilla Hebrew l10n page), and found that the evanglism letter there ( http://www.mozilla.org.il/evangel.shtml ) uses that attribute, thus making it almost unreadble with my mozilla (build ID 2002061603 on Mac OSX)
Yet another site with the same problem: http://www.blabla4u.com/sites/blabla4u/ShowMessage.asp?ID=992320 It seems like align=justify is the latest fashion- which makes reading the web really hard. any idea when this will be fixed?
and another example: http://www.sportenter.co.il/main.asp this is getting more and more annoying...
set to m1.2alpha
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.2alpha
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020905 I'm seeing this on Arabic pages using Windows XP as well. It seems that not all fonts or font sizes are effected by this bug. I'm uploading a testcase and a screenshot showing some distorted text using "Arabic Transparent." Mozilla's default Arabic font on windows.
