   Hello, Richard!

A few comments.

1) "sripts" instead of "scripts" in the first right-margin block of 
explanations.

2) In this same block, you announce "We also show an ASCII-only, 
visually-ordered version immediately afterwards that shows English text in 
lower case and Hebrew or Arabic in upper case".
However, in the example for using RLE/PDF, the ASCII version text is in 
logical order.

3) "Correspondances" => "Correspondences"  (several occurrences)

4) In the table, the order of the rows should be (for consistency):  LRE, 
RLE, LRO, RLO, PDF.

5) In the "Correspondences" section, you may want to signal a significant 
difference between the effect of the Unicode control characters and the 
corresponding markup: the effect of dir="ltr"/"rtl" may apply to a whole 
page, or division while the effect of LRE/RLE is terminated at paragraph 
end.
