Re: Fwd: Re: qshutdown release coming
No pain, there's a quick dirty trick for that.
Make the <div dir="%s"> hardcoded and make the %s translatable, meaning
that the pot will include the string "ltr", If I translate that to rtl it
will change the direction respectively, otherwise it will just stay as is
(ltr) even if not translated.
