I18N-ISSUE-33: Add note about using bidi constructs in content

Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: 

3.2.3.5 The dir attribute
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/elements.html#the-dir-attribute

WG Approved: Yes


We propose that you add a note making clear that using the directional markup provided by HTML5 is is better than attaching CSS styling to arbitrary markup such as <p> etc., since information encoded in this way will apply to the content whether the CSS is used or not.
