Hi, Fantasai, my apologies for my really cursory glance at your draft; I hope to look at it soon in more detail.

I have a proofreading comment on the text in Example 1 in Section 2.2 (http://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/#unicode-bidi).
"For example, where <BR/> is a forced paragraph break the bidi ordering is identical between

<para>...<i1><i2>...<BR/>...</i2><i1>...</para>

and
http://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/#unicode-bidi
"<para>...<i1><i2>...</i2><i1><BR/><i1><i2>...</i2><i1>...</para>

for all values of unicode-bidi on inline elements <i1> and <i2>"

Should not this text read the following,
=> 
"For example, where <BR/> is a forced paragraph break the bidi ordering is identical between

<para>...<i1><i2>...<BR/>...</i2></i1>...</para>

and

<para>...<i1><i2>...</i2></i1><BR/><i1><i2>...</i2></i1>...</para>

for all values of unicode-bidi on inline elements <i1> and <i2>"
?
{COMMENT:  I am confused by this example as I  would normally expect the <i1> element to close before the <para> element. I am sure you meant to do so here.}

Best,

--C. E. Whitehead
