Here's my attempt:

<!doctype html>
<title>Bidi isolation of inside list marker</title>
<ol dir="rtl" style="list-style: upper-alpha inside">
    <li>B</li>
</ol>

In Gecko, Presto and WebKit it looks like

B .A

which is what would happen with unicode-bidi:isolate on the marker, if I  
understand correctly. In IE8 it looks like

A.B
