Maybe I wasn't brief or clear enough.

I don't think that this bug is actually fixed because I don't think the CSS
changes do anything to the way the title, alt, and placeholder attributes are
displayed. In other words, in an iso-8859-8 page, alt="OLLEH" needs to be
displayed as OLLEH, not as HELLO (which would be visually backwards). But if
one would take an iso-8859-8 page, add to it the CSS that has been given here,
and re-label it as iso-8859-8-I, alt="OLLEH" would indeed be displayed as HELLO
because the CSS simply does not and should not apply to alt.

I am not changing the status of this bug or filing a new bug because I do not
think that there is a way to fix the remaining issue. I am just recording it
for posterity.
