All of the direction-unicode-bidi testcases rely upon a reference image, 
with a pass condition of "test passes if characters are in the same 
order", and use a mixture of English and Arabic (presumably to have one 
ltr and one rtl language).

However, in some cases, it's not immediately obvious whether some 
testcases pass; for example, in the screenshot attached it's not clear 
to me whether the first/last Arabic characters are the same as in the 
screenshot, but it could just be a difference of fonts/ligatures.

It'd be desirable to have the testcases not being reliant upon a 
screenshot (which inherently will only be exactly equal for a specific 
rendering of a single font), but at the very least minimizing font 
differences (not having the tests being affected by ligatures would 
help, I think).
