Shalom Mati,

 

Thanks for your comments! 

 

1] fixed

 

2] the introductory text says " The following shows the characters as
ordered in memory,".  It's always difficult to know how to show examples of
bidi source text, but since this is showing the relative positions of
characters, I thought the 'as in memory' approach would probably be bestů

 

3] Fixed thanks.  I normally run a spell-checker last thing before
publishing, but I forgot this time.

 

4] Fixed.

 

5] Added.

 

Thanks again !

RI

   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.
