The way I think, the most important mode is missing: Logical RTL in an RTL
environment.

So I prepared these examples:

http://www.qsm.co.il/Hebrew/BidiExamples3.html

I don't know Arabic, so I ask our Arabic knowledgeable colleagues to forgive
and correct any mistake I have made.

I have checked my implementation, and found the bug, and fixed it.
As a result of this fix, the Hebrew and Arabic versions are no longer
different, so I have changed the text, too. The result seems to match
with the implementations of major browsers. I'm going to move this
issue to 'tentatively closed'.
