Hebrew Mozilla Build with Right-to-Left User Interface Modifications

Wednesday October 29th, 2003

Tsahi Asher writes: "The Mozilla Hebrew l10n team would like to announce a localized build, which contains both a Hebrew language pack and Modern and Classic themes that are modified for a right-to-left interface. For example, the Back button points right and the Forward button points left, and many other such adjustments in images and styles.

"To distinguish it from the standard localized build, I call it Mozilla-RTL, but I'm not sure it's different enough from the original Mozilla to have it's own brand name.

"Naturally, it can be used with language packs of other RTL languages, either by installing their packs or replacing the Hebrew pack with the other pack in the build and releasing it as a localized build of another language."

Update: Tshai writes: "In response to readers comments, I uploaded a page with some screenshots of the Hebrew Mozilla. As you can see, the language pack flips the interface right-side-left, and the new themes complement it with adjusted graphics."

#7 RTL in Mozilla

The most important feature in this category would be to create an rtl paragraph switching option in the standard editions of Mozilla, Firebird and Thunderbird, so that it would be possible to write messages in rtl languages (browsers also need this function to allow people to use web mail efficiently). Without this option it is not possible to recommend Mozilla apps as an alternative to IE in organisations where rtl composition is occasionally necessary.
