Folks, but especially Aharon and Mati,

In August I started updating the main tutorial and article we have about 
bidi in HTML to include the recent additions to HTML5.

I also pulled the details out of the current tutorial into articles (as 
for language and encoding resources before).

I have some early drafts here, and would appreciate any comments 
(especially, of course, on the section called "Handling content whose 
direction is not known in advance" at 
http://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/new-bidi-xhtml/qa-html-dir#blockelements3)

Here are the documents:

Creating HTML Pages in Arabic, Hebrew and Other Right-to-left Scripts 
(tutorial format)

Visual vs. logical ordering of text

Text direction and structural markup in HTML

What you need to know about the bidi algorithm and inline markup

Thanks,
