"non-textual entities such as images are treated as neutral characters,
unless their 'unicode-bidi' property has a value other than 'normal', in
which case they are treated as strong characters in the 'direction'
specified for the element."

This is not very clear. What cases are intended to have a different
rendering than that which would result if this phrase were omitted, and
the image was treated as a neutral character preceded by LRE/RLE/LRO/RLO
and followed by PDF?

If 'direction' has the value 'rtl', should the image be considered as
having character type R or AL? Consider the case of an image in Arabic
text followed by a mathematical formula.

Does this section apply to inline replaced elements with textual
content, for example form controls?
