+   <p>Consider the following markup, which has Hebrew text asking for
+   a programming language, the languages being text for which a
+   left-to-right direction is important given the punctuation in some
+   of their names:</p>
+
+   <pre>&lt;p dir="rtl" lang="he"&gt;
+ &lt;label&gt;
+  <span dir="rtl" lang="he" title="">&#1489;&#1495;&#1512; &#1513;&#1508;&#1514; &#1514;&#1499;&#1504;&#1493;&#1514;:</span>

+
+   <p>If the <code><a href="#the-select-element">select</a></code> element was rendered as a drop down
+   box, a correct rendering would ensure that the punctuation was the
+   same both in the drop down, and in the box showing the current
+   selection.</p>
