These are consolidated comments from IBM Bidi Globalization Center of 
Competency on the document stored at:  
http://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/new-bidi-xhtml/Overview-inline

Section The Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm

> It is important to understand, first, that the order of characters in 
memory (logical) is not the same as the order in which they are displayed 
(visual). 
This is true for logical ordering schema (which is de-facto standard on 
such systems as Windows, Linux). However, this is not true for visual 
ordering schema (which is de-facto standard on such systems as main frame, 
iSeries). I would suggest to add a footnote saying that:
1. This is true for logical ordering schema which is a standard one for 
such systems as Windows / Linux
2. Except for 
http://www.w3.org/International/tutorials/new-bidi-xhtml/qa-visual-vs-logical 
article the rest of content assumes logical ordering schema of data.
