While iso-8859-8 and iso-8859-8-i both encode and decode Hebrew in the same
way, the former displays in visual direction while the latter displays in
logical direction.

The CSS specification needs to describe this in some way.

See http://encoding.spec.whatwg.org/ for details on the encodings. See bug
17003 and http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20121012#l-540 for some of the
history behind this filing.

As part of this you might want to consider studying -webkit-rtl-ordering. (I
have not been able to find much.)
