If you don't have one, get and install a font supporting Syriac (e.g. the one at http://titus.fkidg1.uni-frankfurt.de/unicode/tituut.asp - free for noncommercial use) 2. Open http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syriac_language with various browsers (Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, MSIE) 3. Compare the letter order at the first table line (yellow background) where Syriac is written also in Syriac letters Actual Results: Syriac characters displayed in left to right direction Expected Results: Mozilla and Firefox should display the word in Syriac in right to left direction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syriac_language and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syriac_alphabet should provie links to further information about Syriac script Bug report 291904 (Mozilla Suite)

Using Firefox 1.0.4 for Windows 98SE, and being the primary author of both http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syriac_language and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aramaic_language, I notice that the Syriac names at the top of the infobox (in the yellow box) appear back to front in the former but correctly for latter. The only difference is that the latter sample is offset with break and paragraph tags.
