  1. Thanks Carrie 🙂

    I encourage developers to contact me if they need help with testing their products for RTL support.

  2. Great article on WordPress l10n. Somewhat light on the intricacies of i18n.

    It was good to see mentions of font issues and the need for stylesheet for handling languages were bidi issues exist.

    One comment though … theme developers should give some thought to the best methodology for theme users to add language specific styling to themes.

    Fonts are one aspect, font face, size and leading. But other factors come into play as well, including css related to line breaking, elements that default to italic typefaces. Font families for many scripts rarely come with Italic or oblique typefaces, its not part of their typographic and typesetting traditions.
