--- Comment #31 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
If the browsers don't match the specs, doing nothing is not an option. We're
not writing works of fiction here.

Ok, here's a concrete proposal. The following text would be added at the end of
the rendering subsection titled "Bidirectional text":

--------------------8<--------------------
When the document's character encoding is iso-8859-8, the following rules are
additionally expected to apply, following those above:

 address, blockquote, center, div, figure, figcaption, footer, form,
 header, hr, legend, listing, main, p, plaintext, pre, summary, xmp, article,
 aside, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hgroup, nav, section, table, caption,
 colgroup, col, thead, tbody, tfoot, tr, td, th, dir, dd, dl, dt, menu,
 ol, ul, li, [dir=ltr i], [dir=rtl i], [dir=auto i], *|* {
   unicode-bidi: bidi-override; 
 }
 input:not([type=submit i]):not([type=reset i]):not([type=button i]), textarea,
 keygen { unicode-bidi: normal; }
--------------------8<--------------------

Does that look right?
