Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

i have recently added a few points on the map in both Arabic and English, the names in Arabic did not show up in the right order, for example "Girls high school" showed up as "school high girls" can anyone explain to me why and how i could fix this?

This question is marked "community wiki".

Arabic is written from right to left. Maybe the renderer is stupid? :D

can you give a concrete example via a permalink from the OSM main site?

I have seen this happen when Arabic is word wrapped using an algorithm that treats it as Latin text
