I fully agree with Fantasai's comments. As it currently stands, the diff is not
sufficient to address the bug. In fact, I think it should be clarified even
further, to something like this:

Text from scripts (e.g. the argument to window.alert()) is expected to be
rendered as Unicode plain text, with the base direction of each paragraph
determined by Unicode detection rules from the paragraph's content. For
example, the line and paragraph-breaking behavior of LF is honored, and a
paragraph starting with RTL text must appear in an RTL base direction. [BIDI]

It would also be best to move the programming languages select example to
appear between "from which the text was obtained." and "Text from scripts".
