Hi Yves,

This looks great! Richard, could you have a look at this, since you are
the XHTML expert?

What we still would need is a modularization XHTML+ITS, like Sebastian
did for ITS and I did it for XML Spec. But that can wait, I guess.
Just a comment below.

I think to exclude the "bdo" element, you might write
<its:dirRule its:selector="//h:*[not(name()='bdo') and @dir='rtl']"
its:dir="rtl"/>
but strictly speaking it is not necessary, since the order of the
dirRule elements has the same effect.

Did you decide here to go without the "yes" ("no") attribute?

I think this should be <its:langRule its:selector="//*"
its:langMap="@lang" />
