HTML 4, "Language information and text direction", says:

"Because HTML uses the full Unicode bidirectionality algorithm, conforming
documents must be labeled as "iso-8859-8-e". Implicit bidirectionality is
part of the full Unicode algorithm, so the values "iso-8859-8-i" may also
be accepted, but should not be used."

I believe this is a mistake. Unicode is "iso-8859-8-i". "iso-8859-8-e" is
the ISO 6429 explicit directionality that is only being used in some Unix
systems.
