*Summary: *There are roughly 500 million speakers of Right-to-Left
languages all over the world, and 16 RTL Wikipedias, but support of
right-to-left languages on the Web in general is so abysmal that it is hard
to find a single piece of software that properly supports all the necessary
behaviors. And yet, that's exactly what we're committed on doing for
Wikipedia's right-to-left users.
This talk will demonstrate the challenges that the web poses for Right to
Left languages, some of the solutions that are available, and some of the
work we've been doing to make RTL users' experience better.
