No, not necessarily; the string could have come from another source and
may not contain the necessary markup or the developer may have entered
the RTL characters using escapes (e.g. \u0xxx); There are a wide range
of possibilities. Fortunately, it is exceedingly simple to strip and add
the necessary formatting characters.
