This is the CSS WG's response to an issue you raised on the last CSS
2.1 draft (http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915). We want to
publish CSS 2.1 as a CR in about two weeks. Please let us know this
week if you think our response is wrong.

Your e-mail:
    9.10 Text direction: the 'direction' and 'unicode-bidi' properties
    "This seemingly one-sided requirement reflects the fact that,
    although not every Hebrew or Arabic document contains
    mixed-directionality text, such documents are much more likely to
    contain left-to-right text (e.g., numbers, text from other
    languages) than are documents written in left-to-right languages."

    Probably what is meant is that dominantly RTL documents are more
    likely to contain LTR parts than dominantly LTR documents are to
    contain RTL parts.

CSS WG response:
    Quoted text removed.

For the CSS WG,
