      The bug

      The book signing screen of writable books has broken formatting for right-to-left languages because it uses the legacy formatting codes:

      • The blinking cursor which is supposed to change colour instead shows a "0" and a "7"
      • The author's name is not gray and instead it shows an "8"

      See attached Book signing broken formatting.mp4.

      How to reproduce

      1. Change the language to a right-to-left one, e.g. Arabic (first right-to-left language in the list)
      2. Give yourself a book and quill
        /give @s writable_book
      3. Open the book and click the button for signing it (left button)
        The formatting is broken as described above
