Firefox he-il locale should include Hebrew theme

Bug Description

Since Hebrew is Right-To-Left language, the Hebrew locale of Firefox has its
interface mirrored ("File" at the upper right of the window). As workaround
until there is bidirectional themes, there is RTL theme, which has mirrored
images to make it appear right.

The binary Hebrew version of Firefox availble from mozilla.org has the required
theme, and Fedora Core already has it in the default install.

Firefox 1.5 ("Deer Park") will possible include the patch of RTL themes, but it
is not the case for 1.0.x.

Have you looked at http://www.mozilla.org.il/ I see a reference to firefox 1.0.7
but don't know any Hebrew so I can't read the page. And
http://babelfish.altavista.digital.com/babelfish/tr does not do Hebrew to English.

Firefox 1.5 in Dapper includes the RTL theme already, and the Hebrew locale
package should do the right thing now. Please test and cry out loudly if it
doesn't work for you.
