Given the intervening period between

<span dir="rtl">&#1506;&#1489;&#1512;&#1497;&#1514;2</span>

and

<span dir="rtl">&#1506;&#1489;&#1512;&#1497;&#1514;3</span>

that inherits its parents text direction (ltr) shouldn't 2 be the
correct rendering?

What would be the correct rendering for:

<p>English1 <span dir="rtl">&#1506;&#1489;&#1512;&#1497;&#1514;2</span>
English 2.5 <span
dir="rtl">&#1506;&#1489;&#1512;&#1497;&#1514;3</span> Englisch4.</p>

or are there special cases for punctuation?
