[Bug 19505] Describe visual direction when document encoding is iso-8859-8


--- Comment #16 from Martin Dürst <duerst@it.aoyama.ac.jp> ---
With regards to the frequency of iso-8859-8 (visual Hebrew), here is what I got
from Aharon Lanin:

Here are some numbers from Google web crawling. These are percentages of
total web pages.

0.061% Windows Hebrew CP1255
0.00081% visual order ISO Hebrew iso-8859-8
0.00060% logical order ISO Hebrew iso-8859-8-i

I suspect that these are actual numbers, i.e. they reflect the actual encoding
of the page (as judged by Google, of course), rather than the declared
encoding. That would also best explain that windows-1255 is 100 times more
popular than iso-8859-8-i.

The question is how much spec work we want to do for something that represents
around one in 120,000 pages, and hopefully is on the decline.
