It's not a default style sheet thing. Look again at the testcases. The dir
attribute values are honored in Opera, Chrome, and Gecko. All of the characters
however are treated as neutral. This isn't something you can simulate with CSS
or Unicode control codes--you'd have to add a new neutral-override feature.
Also, this is not specific to HTML: a plaintext file in this encoding should
behave the same way.
