Bug #99823 - Layout of Arabic (shaped) text is faulty
Depends on: 174470
Good: (green)
- Bidi icons in toolbar.
- Bidi marked XUL. (translation)

Bad: (red)
- Font problems. (without pango)
Bad: (red)
- No file name, address, etc detection makes status-bar buggy with texts and addresses.
No more good (grean) things. :(

Bad: (red)
- Bad font selection (pango) for parenthesis of shortcuts.
- ZWNJ have been removed in XUL texts. (Bug 280936)
- GTK2-based doesn't work well with RTL XUL. (I think we don't have such problems in Win32 backend)
- And the well-known status bar problem with RTL languages. (Filed bug?)
Good: (green)
- Arabic HARKATs are placed well with pango enabled.

Not sure: (gray)
- ZWNJ problems in translations. (see also Bug 280936)  I'm not what the bug is yet!  The first appearance of "بارگیری‌ها" doesn't have ZWNJ displayed, and the second one does!  I'm going to take a look deep on it.

Bad: (red)
- Underline breaks Arabic joining.  Note that we didn't have this problem with Fx1.0.  As you can see, there's no problem in XUL menus too.  Now it's a new problem!
