--- Comment #5 from fantasai <fantasai.bugs@inkedblade.net> ---
Looks like 'direction' is not affected. Between a few rough tests and the
comments in Gecko, I think the rules here are:
  1. Treat all characters in iso-8859-8 documents as matching the embedding
     direction / treat them all as neutral (including any escaped characters).
  2. Treat form controls normally; they are not affected by the encoding.

data:text/html;charset=iso-8859-8,<li>%E0%E1%E2%E3<input%20value="%E0%E1-%E2%E3*"><li%20dir="rtl">%E0%E1%E2%E3<li>&rlm;%E0%E1%E2%E3&rlm;<li%20style="direction:%20rtl">%E0%E1AB%E2%E3

As for what spec to put that in... I'd suggest a combination of Encoding and
HTML, e.g. Encoding for rule #1, and HTML for rule #2. This is very specific to
iso-8859-8.

smontagu, does that seem right?
