Looks like 'direction' is not affected. Between a few rough tests and the
comments in Gecko, I think the rules here are:
  1. Treat all characters in iso-8859-8 documents as matching the embedding
     direction / treat them all as neutral (including any escaped characters).
  2. Treat form controls normally; they are not affected by the encoding.


As for what spec to put that in... I'd suggest a combination of Encoding and
HTML, e.g. Encoding for rule #1, and HTML for rule #2. This is very specific to

smontagu, does that seem right?
