Hi Najib,

Thanks for the workaround. Interesting behavior.

We'll probably try to resolve the issue by using <span dir="rtl">: It's 'just' a matter of getting the transform to catch the cases
where we need to add the markup. (The text of the examples in the spec is generated from the real XML files). But it is good to know
that there is a way around if needed.

It seems that firefox/camino/mozilla have a strange behavior with this pre element <pre> &#x202B; &#1606;&#1588;&#1575;&#1591;
&#1575;&#1604;&#1578;&#1583;&#1608;&#1610;&#1604; W3C </pre>

where 2020B is a ctrl char, (RIGHT-TO-LEFT EMBEDDING here).
The texte is "Internationalization Activity" in Arabic (from your example 35)

A solution is to break your texte in two lines !??
&#x202B; &#1606;&#1588;&#1575;&#1591;
&#1575;&#1604;&#1578;&#1583;&#1608;&#1610;&#1604; W3C </pre>

Really strange.
See my example of the  bug in
