Given some other mail I received, I think it might be good to use words as
follows:

French Arabic Hebrew German 

This should not affect the expected ordering of directional runs, but having
two RTL directional runs side by side improves the test - see the results
for Firefox at

Done.

This test is specifically for tooltip rendering, so I'm content to produce a
tooltip by any means. Note that if you display attribute text using CSS
:before, say, it will be rendered appropriately because it is rendered with
the rest of the text.

Thanks for pointing that out.  I forgot to remove it after some
experimentation. Now gone.
