I believe these tests:
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/direction-unicode-bidi-028.htm
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/xhtml1/direction-unicode-bidi-028.xht
are invalid because they assume that the user-agent style sheet does
not have the rule:
  div { unicode-bidi: embed }

In particular, this rule applies to the inner div in the test line,
and makes it a non-overriding rtl embedding rather than being part
of the containing overriding one.

This rule is a recommended part of the default style sheet as a
result of http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css2.1#issue-148 .
