I was looking at
   http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-bidi-css-markup
yesterday and noticed that there's still a major error in this section:
   http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-bidi-css-markup#xhtml

Specifically, because namespacing allows XHTML to be recognized as XHTML
even in compound documents, XHTML 'dir' attributes should work in browsers
even when the document is served as XML.

I mentioned this in 2005..
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-international/2005JulSep/0050.html
but it appears it still has not been fixed. :(
