I was surprised too and a little disappointed. I find LRM & RLM very 
useful and use them often. Is there an alternative to fix the correct 
rendering of punctuations between bidi texts for example? One can put 
such text PLUS it's punctuation into a span element with a dir 
attribute. But the rendering might not be the same (old browsers?) if 
this text has to be displayed in more than one line (table cells, small 
windows ...).

Salam, Najib
