I HAVE BEEN TOLD I DESERVE
“A FULL LIFE THAT ISN’T JUST ABOUT FIGHTING FOR THINGS”

OK, can somebody tell me how to read the filename of this icon out loud? And I do not refer to Hebrew pronunciation. What direction of reading wins out? Left-to-right or right-to-left? Or both? And when?

Upper illustration is in Jaguar, lower one in Tiger:

Screenshots show, at top, a Windows Media document icon with filename 04 ריספקט.wma and a generic icon with filename wma.ריספקט 04

Notice that Tiger seems to want the extension to be listed leftmost. An English-language system does not recognize .wma as the extension, and also prevents you from adding a new one in the Get Info panel.
