i don't think two separate tracking bugs are needed for this?

Roozbeh has not updated/managed his bug tracker for long time.  I wanna to close
that one and open a new one.  Because of new mozilla's buzilla policy, I cannot
do everything in that one.

Would someone assign this bug to me, please?

Depends on Bug 231701 - format=flowed DelSp=yes not supported (RFC 3676)

Because:  Lake of line-break/paragraph-separator detection cause many BiDi
problems, i.e. mail client fails to auto-align paragraph.

No more good (grean) things. :(

Bad: (red)
- Bad font selection (pango) for parenthesis of shortcuts.
- ZWNJ have been removed in XUL texts. (Bug 280936)
- GTK2-based doesn't work well with RTL XUL. (I think we don't have such problems in Win32 backend)
- And the well-known status bar problem with RTL languages. (Filed bug?)

Firefox 2.0b1 nightly with 'fa' langpack installed.  Screenshot 04

Good: (green)
- Arabic HARKATs are placed well with pango enabled.

Not sure: (gray)
- ZWNJ problems in translations. (see also Bug 280936)  I'm not what the bug is yet!  The first appearance of "بارگیری‌ها" doesn't have ZWNJ displayed, and the second one does!  I'm going to take a look deep on it.

Bad: (red)
- Underline breaks Arabic joining.  Note that we didn't have this problem with Fx1.0.  As you can see, there's no problem in XUL menus too.  Now it's a new problem!
