Hi Najib and Richard,

at least with Najib we discussed styling of "right-to-left" text in 
source code visualization a while ago, but now we are not sure what to 
do about this example:

1) 
http://www.w3.org/International/its/techniques/its-techniques.html#AuthDir 
(example 33, W3C on the right of the Hebrew text)

versus this example:

2) http://www.w3.org/TR/its/#directionality-implementation (example 33, 
"W3C" on the left of the Hebrew text)

we thought that the ITS 1.0 spec would be right, but have discovered now 
the visualization at

3) http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-bidi-controls (example 
below "The HTML4 standard introduced markup to produce exactly the same 
effects as these Unicode characters.". "W3C" is on the right of the 
Hebrew text)

So we need to discuss again what the appropriate visualization for 
"right-to-left" source code is. 1) and 3) visualize as if the outcome of 
the BIDI algorithm is overridden via the "dir" attribute, 2) is the 
other way round.

Many thanks for your input in advance,

Felix
