Hi Najib,

many thanks for your mail.

I would propose to resolve this issue like this:

Add the following note to example 4 and add a reference to that note to 
example 31:

Note also that this example shows the directionality of the of source 
text correctly. This is to ensure that you understand the concepts being 
described. For such display, a sophisticated editor that resolves 
directionality of the source text correctly. Many editors are not yet 
this sophisticated. See the related discussion about <a 
href="http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-bidi.html#d2e277">Problems 
with bidirectional source text</a> in  [Reference to 
"Internationalization Best Practices: Handling Right-to-left Scripts in 
XHTML and HTML Content"].

and have proper display for these examples. I have changed the XSLT 
stylesheet accordingly.

Felix
