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/#newline-as-separator
[http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#newline-as-separator]
. Here is the proposal made there:

The LINE SEPARATOR (U+2028) and PARAGRAPH SEPARATOR (U+2029) characters in the
plain text displayed by the page's scripts using functions such as Javascript's
alert() and confirm() should break lines. PARAGRAPH SEPARATOR characters in
these elements should constitute UBA paragraph breaks, while LINE SEPARATOR
characters should constitute UBA whitespace, as defined by the Unicode
standard.
