Created attachment 387450 [details] testcase each line of text should be aligned on right-hand. NB: last item is thrown-out to right. same bug in opera parity webkit this should be an "easy-fix"
(In reply to comment #0) > this should be an "easy-fix" Happy to review any easy patch you submit then :-)
Created attachment 396692 [details] Modified test case which doesn't reproduce the issue (for comparison) Seems to be due to white space handling: by removing the white space notes from within the text element, all strings pass to be properly aligned right. This suggests that the description is wrong: it's not the last item which is shifted right, it's the remaining items shifted left! ;-) There's a somehow related white space handling noted in another bug's comment  (second bullet in "Few thoughts"), which suggests that maybe white space handling should deserve a bug of it's own.  https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=292498#c10
Reproducible on Win2003 Server (FF 3.5.2), suggest Platform => All

You could replace the whitespace by letters to see what's going on. The final whitespace is suppressed because the default processing mode for text is xml:space="default" which removes initial and trailing whitespace and compresses internal whitespace to one space.
Just confirmed that it still reproduces for both stable and trunk (using a nightly build) on Windows. Adjusting platform to "All" as suggested in comment #3.
Fixed by patch in bug 620286
