Comment:This is a part of the proposals made by the "Additional Requirements
for Bidi in HTML" W3C First Public Working Draft. For a full description of the
use cases, please see 
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#script-dialog
[http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#script-dialog]
. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should state that plain text passed by page scripts
without specifying an explicit direction to whatever services script languages
provide for dialog display (e.g. Javascript's alert(), confirm() and prompt())
should be displayed according to the UBA's rules P1, P2, and P3, which estimate
the direction of each paragraph according to its first strong character.
