      1. Prepare for this one. You will need IE7 & IE8, IE9 Firefox, Chrome, and Safari (minimum). You will also need to know a RTL language. So a tester with this ability would be better equipped.
      2. Ensure you have a custom menu created on your site with multi lang capability.
      3. Switch to a RTL language.
      4. Enable "Allow theme change by URL" in theme settings
      5. In each browser open the following pages (order is important)
        • /index.php?theme=base_rtl
        • /login/index.php(and login as an admin)
        • /course/report/outline/index.php?id=1

      Make sure that blocks and layout works on all pages, it should look nearly identical in all pages. However, blocks normally on the left will swap to the right and visa-versa.

      After testing in RTL change back to LTR and test to see that the theme works OK, checking to see that the blocks are positioned correctly.

      Description

      This BUG affects all CORE themes apart from Standard (Legacy)

      while using windows and ie7 on RTL languages (like Hebrew and Arabic)
      both right and left blocks aren't appearing at all...

      other problems extend to the Login page, where the middle part of the page appears blank, whilst the header and footer are visible, including performance info as seen in Moodle Q&A Test site when viewing Standard theme in IE8 in IE7 Compatibility Mode.
