From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows 98) BuildID: 00000000 - Bidi build dated 20010404 Bidi: When a Arabic visual (FE range characters) htm is displayed on Windows 2000 and windows NT having a 06 character such as kashida or Arabic semicolon, Shaddah in it, the system does some bidi processing to the string which then changes it correct order. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open file cp864.htm 2.check out on of the words with Shaddah in. Actual Results: the order of the word with Shaddah character is mixed up Expected Results: the word should read correctly. You can view that by setting Mozilla clipboard mode to logical and copy that word, then paste it in Notepad. Need to insert Right-to-Left markers before those characters in the buffer, to force their correctc display on Win2000 and NT
maha: could you make two screen shot, one with correct, one with the actual result? bidi functional bug, move to moz0.9.1
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.1
after talk to maha, we decide to change the 864 to unicode converter to solve this issue We need to add 200E before the following code point E0 AC B0-B9 BB
I need to rewrite the converter, I cannot use the current .ut mechanism to do that.
Assignee: erik → ftang
Attached file cp864.cpg, which contains the conversion table from 864 to Unicode FE range
Frank, please add the following code points to your list that also need the 200E character inserted before them. (the code points are in 864) 0x25 0xbf
mark it as assign

Assigning Arabic bug back to mahar: firstname.lastname@example.org Zach, in future, please re-aasign Arabic specific bug to her. You should keep Hebrew or Bidi bugs.
QA Contact: zach → mahar
the patch in bug 81664 solves this problem as it handles FE & 06 characters seperately and thus at one point of time there is only one type of string sent for display (either FE or 06).
Depends on: 81664
Maha, please resolve this bug if it is fixed in current trunk builds.
