           Summary: Describe visual direction when document encoding is
                    iso-8859-8
        QA Contact: public-css-bugzilla@w3.org
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: annevk@annevk.nl
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: Writing Modes
           Product: CSS

While iso-8859-8 and iso-8859-8-i both encode and decode Hebrew in the same
way, the former displays in visual direction while the latter displays in
logical direction.

The CSS specification needs to describe this in some way.

See http://encoding.spec.whatwg.org/ for details on the encodings. See bug
17003 and http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20121012#l-540 for some of the
history behind this filing.

As part of this you might want to consider studying -webkit-rtl-ordering. (I
have not been able to find much.)
