I18N-ISSUE-40: U+2028 and U+2029 in dialog text [HTML5-bidi]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/40

Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: HTML5-bidi

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. 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.
