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:

    > S9.10 Text direction: the 'direction' and 'unicode-bidi' properties
    > http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-CSS21-20030915/visuren.html#direction

    Left out the rest:

    # For block-level elements this creates an override for
    # inline-level descendents not within another block.

    Why does adding a "display: block" to an element in a paragraph
    all of a sudden obviate the need for a directional override?

CSS WG response:
    See CSS3 Text or a tutorial for details about why
    'direction' and 'unicode-bidi' work this way. No change in CSS 2.1

For the CSS WG,
