ISSUE-2348: direction property and the effect on text elements [SVG 1.1 F2  Last Call]

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/WG/track/issues/2348

Raised by: Erik Dahlström
On product: SVG 1.1 F2  Last Call

>From the definition of the 'direction' property[1]:
[[ For the ‘direction’ property to have any effect, the ‘unicode-bidi’ property's value must be embed or bidi-override. ]]

This is misleading and wrong, and breaks testcases. A better definition is in SVG Tiny 1.2 [2]:

[[ For the 'direction' property to have any effect on an element that does not by itself establish a new text chunk (such as the 'tspan' element in SVG 1.2 Tiny), the 'unicode-bidi' property's value must be embed or bidi-override. ]]

Proposed edit for 1.1F2:

[[ For the 'direction' property to have any effect on an element that does not by itself establish a new text chunk (such as a 'tspan' element without absolute position adjustments due to 'x' or 'y' attributes), the 'unicode-bidi' property's value must be embed or bidi-override. ]]
