Hi Mati,

Thanks for the comments.

The &lrm; is meant to illustrate using an LRM (a Unicode bidi control) as a substitute for external metadata. Of course, the <span> element also has a dir attribute for the same reason. Probably I should split this into two examples.

In 1.1 "Why is this important?", there is a suggested work-around like follows:
"title": "&lt;span lang='en-US' dir='ltr'>&amp;lrm;Mobi Dick&lt;/span>"

The &amp;lrm; does not contribute anything useful, thus it would better be removed from the suggestion.

Shalom (Regards),  Mati
