Description R. Rajesh Jeba Anbiah 2004-11-15 11:05:06 PST
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

See in this page http://peddai.blogspot.com/, few texts are under "text-align:
justify;" style (for other styles, it works fine) and so the characters are
messed up. Obviously the problem is with "justify". Not to mention that it works
fine in IE.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put any Tamil texts under "text-align: justify"
2. Or try this <div style="text-align: justify;">நிறையப் பேர்</div> Vs <div
style="text-align: left;">நிறையப் பேர்</div>
3. Look at this page http://peddai.blogspot.com/ (as of November 16, 2004 00:34 IST)

Actual Results:  
The "text-align: justify;" Tamil unicode texts are flipped and severely broken.

Expected Results:  
"text-align: justify;" texts have to be justified without the Tamil characters
been messed up or broken.

At least on Windows this depends on bug 218887.
