           Summary: UI language code and direction is applied to content
                    in MobileFrontent

           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

In desktop MediaWiki there's a clear separation between user interface language
and content language. They can be different. For example, in Commons the
content language is English, but many people browse it in other languages.

This is not done in MobileFrontend. This is especially apparent if the
direction (ltr/rtl) of the user language is different from the content

To see the problem do this:

1. Log in to .
2. Go to preferences and change your language to Hebrew.
3. Go to .

Expected: The content of the page is supposed to be set to left-to-right
Observed: The content of the page is right-to-left.

The attributes lang="he" dir="rtl" from <html> are applied to the whole page.

<div id="content"> should probably have lang="en" dir="ltr" (or whatever is
needed according to the site's content language).
