Arabic Mathematical Notation in Firefox 12


Dear Arabic Mozilla Community,

As you know, Aurora 12 has recently been released [1]. This version 
includes a new feature to write mathematical formulas from right to left 
using MathML 3. Obviously, this may be relevant to some people from the 
arabic community [2]. To use it, one only has to attach an attribute 
dir=rtl to  elements. See for example [3]. To get a good rendering 
of mathematical formulas, it is also important to have the STIX fonts 
installed on your computer [4]. Any feedback or question on this new 
feature is welcome!
