We just had this question closed as a dupe and merged. Its dupe's title contains Hebrew lettering which seems to have thrown off the banner, as shown: Browser screenshot showing a closed-as-duplicate question, with the duplicate banner including Hebrew text from the end of the previous question's title inserted between "5" and "answers" instead of before the "5"

My bad - a fix will be pushed out in the next build, > rev 2013.2.21.516.


A solution would be to insert a left-to-right mark (U+200E) before <span class="question-originals-answer-count">. This probably should be done systemwide, not just on Mi Yodeya, because of the possibility of right-to-left characters elsewhere.

    Another solution would be to set the direction of the aforementioned span as left-to-right using dir='ltr' or CSS: but I'm guessing those have less browser support.

    We use the dir attribute elsewhere; just going to add that. Thanks! Feb 21, 2013 at 18:23
