Comment:This is a part of the proposals made by the "Additional Requirements
for Bidi in HTML" W3C First Public Working Draft. For a full description of the
use cases, please see 
. Here is the proposal made there:

An element with display:block, except when it has been taken out of document
flow with CSS such as float or position:absolute, but regardless of whether it
is a block element or inline element, should be specified as introducing a UBA
paragraph break between the content preceding and following it. This does not
present a problem for backward compatibility because there has been no browser
interoperability in this respect.

If the display:block element has display:inline ancestors that have bidi
properties (e.g. the dir attribute or the <bdo> element), these bidi properties
should be applied to the anonymous block boxes created for these ancestors, in
accordince with CSS specs for anonymous block boxes.
