“In this article right-to-left text in code samples is represented by 
UPPERCASE TRANSLATIONS, and left-to-right text by lowercase.”, says the 
explanation.

But this convention is not used throughout all examples, e.g.
`<p>The title is "AN INTRODUCTION TO c++" in Arabic.</p>`
should read
`<p>the title is "AN INTRODUCTION TO c++" in arabic.</p>`

Fortunately, with the leading > and trailing < characters which are 
escaped in the HTML code all relevant places are easy to spot:

replace	&gt;The title
with	&gt;the title

replace	Arabic.&lt;
with	arabic.&lt;

replace	&gt;We
with	&gt;we

replace	&gt;The names of these states in Arabic
with	&gt;the names of these states in arabic

replace	in Hebrew.&lt;
with	in hebrew.&lt;

Cheers,
Gunnar
