I've been working on some bidi related tests for the 2.1 testsuite, as  
well as converting a few of Richard Ishida's tests for language dependent  
styling to match the testsuite template. The tests are ready for review at  


- The list tests may not be strictly valid according to spec, depending on  
outcome of bullet position proposal (see  

- Pass condition of bidi-first-letter-001.xht is complicated. Suggestions  
on how to make it simpler are welcome. Just saying "letter" is not  
descriptive enough for a non-Arabic speaker, obviously. I could  
demonstrate with a force-joining character to show exactly what the blue  
part should be, but that would complicate the test too, and would rely on  
browser supporting forced joining which is not given.

- The first-letter spec section is a bit unclear as to what "first" really  
means. In creating the tests, I have assumed "first" to mean "logical  
first", which is the interpretation that seems to be implied by the text  
"Similarly, if the first letter(s) of the block are not at the start of  
the line (for example due to bidirectional reordering), then the UA need  
not create the pseudo-element(s)."

Furthermore, it is my opinion that BTS2 must be destroyed
