> I guess one of the questions this raises, and for which the Japanese government likely provides no guidance, is what happens if you throw Arabic in there: do you get the same effect as if it was set with vertical-rl / upright, rotated, or do you get normal horizontal rtl arabic, and therefore bidi. I suspect that if we do it using `text-orientation: forced-sideways`, then you'd likely get the former, but since `text-orientation` applies to inlines, you could set different values on different runs of text, and get the later.
