| There are some Unicode chars that do not have a predetermined
| directionality.

This is mainly punctuation, whitespace, and suchlike. They are
classified as 'neutral' in the Unicode character database and their
directionality in actual text is resolved depending on the direction
of surrounding text (and the embedding levels assigned to it).

| It would be worth finding out which.

It is rare for it to be necessary to assign directionality to these
characters explicitly (or to have to resort to similar tricks to
ensure a particular presentation).
