No, it does happen on sa and kn as far as I've known. Strangely enough, it doesn't seem to happen all the time for me on firefox 1.5. On opening the page once, it renders fine. Shift to another tab, open a web page and revisit the previously opened tab, the rendering goes messy with this kind of overlapping. If you have more than one Unicode font installed for the particular language, the font used previously gets changed too, on doing this.
Confirm bug on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3; and confirm it does render correctly on Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.

Mass-assigning the new rtl keyword to RTL-related (see bug 349193).
