The discussion about this bug was in http://www.phpbbarabia.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=32703 And the solution was by using 'div' like in : http://www.cg-cg.net/test2/ thank you
My Arabic isn't good enough to follow the discussion on phpbbarabia.com, I'm afraid, but as far as I can tell this is not a bug in Firefox. Forcing text to right-to-left is the expected behaviour after the character U+202E RIGHT-TO-LEFT override, which appears in the testcase after the آ. What's not clear to me is why the character appears at all -- is it inserted by the phpbb software, or does it always appear when the آ is input from the keyboard? Are there any browsers where the forcing to right-to-left does not occur?
