[CSS21] bidi paragraph separators vs line separators

The Unicode LINE SEPARATOR character (U+2028) is defined to break lines
without breaking the "paragraph". For the most part in CSS it is
equivalent to a newline; however for the BIDI algorithm, the difference
between a line break and a paragraph break is significant. The text in
CSS2.1 needs to be clarified to say that LS does not break the bidi
"paragraph".

Suggested change:
   # inline boxes uninterrupted by a forced line break or block boundary
to
   | inline boxes uninterrupted by a forced (bidi class B)
   | break or block boundary
where "bidi class B" is linked to
