Hmm.  I went to some lengths to test that on IE7, IE8 and some other 
browsers, but couldn't replicate it.  I used a modified version of tests 
20-22 at 
http://www.w3.org/International/tests/tests-html-css/tests-bidi-chrome/generate?test=20
 
If we do find repeatable evidence of the problem, we can add the 
information to 
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/uanotes.html
 
Cheers,
RI

This is a comment on the externalized text howto (at 
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#externalized_text ). 

As far as I remember, putting LRE/RLE and PDF around a Javascript message 
gives the required effect in Internet Explorer only if the message is 
displayed on one line.  If the message spans multiple lines, only the 
first line is affected.  At least this is what happens for me with MS IE7 
under WinXP SP2.  I have not checked what happens with other browsers and 
other platforms. 

This bug/feature does not apply to titles and tooltips which are always 
displayed as a single line.

I have implemented the feedback received on this document in the editor's 
version at 
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/

I have also, after further discussions, made some further changes as 
follows:

1. changed Best Practices to Techniques throughout (and just removed from 
the title)

2. created 3 new techniques
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#scrollbar
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#iso_encoding
http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/#externalized_text

3. redesigned http://www.w3.org/International/docs/bp-html-bidi/uanotes 
and changed the links after each technique so that there is only one now, 
pointing to a section in the uanotes document.  The uanotes document 
contains a short summary of any browser-specific note and pointers to 
tests and results for more information.  It also contains links to the 
appropriate section or sections of the techniques index so you can find 
more information. This document still needs some more work.


If you have any comments on the above, please send to this list.  Barring 
showstoppers, I'd like to publish the final version in about a week to ten 
days.

Thanks.
RI
