The Internationalization Core WG discussed your changes [1], and noticed that you did not actually address our very minor comment embodied in I18N-ISSUE-162, which reads:

Comment: (Section 5) It's a little odd that title is converted to Unicode before setting the direction, while body has its direction set first. Can those be made consistent?

Could you please address this issue?

Thanks,

Addison
