I've just returned from one of the most rewarding experiences I've had in recent memory. Several of the core Gallery developers and support crew met up in New York City. For most of the gang, this was the first time they had heard each other's voices and seen each other's faces in person. These guys have become the best of friends by chatting online daily while they work on Gallery, one of the greatest open source web applications available.
I've been working with themes in Gallery for 6 years and it wasn't until recently that I started to give due consideration to a significant portion of Gallery's users, those whose native language is written from right to left. Shame on me, because it's really not that difficult to add proper RTL text and layout support to web applications. I hope the following helps out those who need to do the same.
I recently needed Java 6 to install an Eclipse patch. As you're probably aware, although Apple updated OS X 10.5 Leopard to Java 6 they probably never will provide updates beyond Java 5 for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. The good news is that if you're running an Intel-based Mac, you can keep your Java environment up-to-date with SoyLatte, which is part of the OpenJDK BSD-Port project.
