Closed Bug 177274 Opened 19 years ago Closed 18 years ago
Scattered text lines when using align=justify in RTL rendered pages
58.07 KB, image/jpeg
This is evident in MAC OS and Windows platforms: when a page is rendered Right to Left, as used by RTL tags, if a text block is align justified, as a result - all lines of text within this block, are scattered around, some aligned to the left, some centered and others aligned to the right. The result is very difficult to read. To cause it one needs to use the following: <body> <div DIR = "RTL"> ...... ......rest of the page ...... <div align= "justify"> Text comes here...... Text comes here...... Text comes here...... Text comes here...... </div> ......rest of the page . . .</div> </body>
reassign for real.

Can you provide a test case and screenshot? The HTML you describe doesn't show the bug for me on Windows or Linux, but perhaps you have reduced it too far. This may be a dupe of bug 121633, bug 131023, bug 148866, and/or Mac-specific bug 146135. Taking for now.

Sorry. It might be a duplicate bug report. I just couldn't locate it via Search. attached is a sample screenshot. code in use: <div style="width:400px; text-align: justify"> xxxxxx </div>
Thanks for the screenshot. What is the URL of the page?
I can't leave the page like this, as it's a live forum page where visitors are coming in, so I deleted this "justify" tag till the bug is fixed.. the change was temporarily made just for the screenshot. The actual forum is at: http://www.act.co.il/forums/
So do you think it is a dupe of one of the bugs mentioned in comment 3? I really can't diagnose any further without at least a copy of the source that displays the buggy behaviour.
It could be a duplicate, though in my case I don't use WORD nor see any relation to any source - just plain justify code. I rendered a dynamic PHP page for you, so you can have a look at the code in use to trigger the bug: http://act.co.il/forums/justify_test.html This may help locate where problem occures within the DIV tag (note the straight lines where lines are alinged diffrently; some do on the left side, some on the right side - not BOTH - taking into account the 400px limit given in the DIV tag (in this example). Also note what happens if english AND hebrew words are mixed on the same line. I have a wild guess that only then the line is jutified (block aligned on both sides).
The penny just dropped here: are you using Mozilla 1.0 (or 1.0.x)? Can you retest with a current nightly? I think this will turn out to be a dupe of a bug which has been fixed in the trunk, but I don't yet know exactly which one.
Update: the bug was fixed between 1.2a and 1.2b.
Sorry, ignore my last two comments. This bug is not fixed in 1.2b, nor in the latest nightlies, but it is fixed in my local tree, where I have applied attachment 85955 [details] [diff] [review] from bug 74880.
Depends on: 74880
http://act.co.il/forums/justify_test.html returns a 404. Is there any other testcase? Reporter, can you still reproduce this bug? Prog.
(In reply to comment #5) > <div style="width:400px; text-align: justify"> > xxxxxx > </div> This code doesn't trigger anything similar to the bug in the screenshot (attachment #104540 [details]). Since no testcase was provided, I'm closing this bug as WORKSFORME. Prog.
