I updated the article 3)
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-bidi-controls since it wasn't
actually doing what the footnote said.  Thanks for pointing that out!

Also note that the fragment identifier at the end of
http://www.w3.org/International/geo/html-tech/tech-bidi.html#d2e277 is
auto-generated, so may not be same in the next version of the doc we
publish.  I have replaced it with #bidisource for the editor's copy, but I
don't know when we are planning to next publish the doc so that that works.
