right-to-left script edits

About Parsoid/Language conversion/Preprocessor fixups/20170501. I saw you edited the hebrew pages. Could you try to handle arabic script too this way (arwiki)? I can handle the russian and japanese script wikis, but right-to-left scripts (pages even) are too tricky for me. I cannot edit those 'in the blind'. There may be more rtl scripts listed.

Thanks for asking!

I'll try fixing some of the simpler cases, because the directionality works the same way in Hebrew and in Arabic, but I probably don't know the Arabic language nearly well enough to fix them all, so I'll probably have to ask for somebody's help at some point.

OK, so I managed to do more than I thought I'd be able to do, and completed most of "other".

For Chemistry, I created {{Hyphen}}, as in English and Hebrew. Would you be able to do the rest?

The non-articles are mostly Lua modules.

" Would you be able to do the rest?" - eh, not that fast.

I asked you because I can handle left-to-right scripts 'into the blind'. Because cyrillic also has the the l-to-r page, I can find & click the tabs and menus (without understanding) in russia ruwiki.

However, in R-to-L hebrew and arabic pages, I cannot even locate the menu words. I cannot create my useful /sandbox page (no need to teach me ;-) ). That's why I asked you: maybe you can edit 'blindly' the r-to-l wikis.
