Several use cases are given and discussed in
<http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#bidi-isolation>.
Please do go through that, there is a lot of important stuff there.
Nevertheless, let me quote one use case here (uppercase English is used to
stand in for RTL script):

<span dir="rtl">PURPLE PIZZA</span> - <a href="ppreviews.html">3 reviews</a>

The intent is to have it appear as

AZZIP ELPRUP - 3 reviews
               ---------

Believe it or not, it is currently (correctly!) displayed as:

3 - AZZIP ELPRUP reviews
-               --------

With ubi, the fix would be to say <span dir="rtl" ubi>PURPLE PIZZA</span>.

I have attached an html file demonstrating this.
