text-align: right has gap at end of line in print preview depending on character kerning (wobbly/misaligned print preview of RTL/Hebrew pages)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 A block element with text-align: right and multiple lines of content will display in Print Preview with ragged padding on the right edge depending on the character content of the line. This occurs only in Print Preview: the browser looks OK, the printed page looks OK. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a <div style="text-align: right;"> 2. Put some lines with <br>s between them and different content between lines 3. Go to Print Preview Actual Results: Print Preview displayed the lines with correct content but the right-align did not accurately align the right edges of each line. Expected Results: The Print Preview should display similarly to the browser - the right edge of the rightmost character in each line should be aligned.

This problem effects Hebrew pages (and probably Arabic ones too), as those usually include dir="rtl". The bug occurs even in pages that don't explicitly specify text-align: right, therefore I'm adding this to the summary of the bug to make it easier to find. I'm also changing OS to All, see comment #3. Prog.

This bug looks very similar to bugs #140636 and #140759 I suppose they are closely related, and probably the same problem cause the 3 bugs.
I see a similar thing with Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041108 Firefox/1.0 - the Hebrew page looks fine on screen, but when printing to PDF via Acrobat distiller the lines are jagged.
Had problems with this bug for a while now. Added testcase using
I can't reproduce this any more (tested with print preview on Windows and print-to-pdf on Mac). Please reopen if this is still a problem in a trunk build.
