Hi Richard,

I think that directional embedding (without isolation) can
make sense when, for example, several opposite-direction
phrases are supplied by different content providers, but
actually form a single phrase.

   <span dir=ltr>Open: </span>
   <span dir=ltr>c:\myfile.txt</span>

The display in this case is expected to be:

   Open: c:\myfile.txt :SYAS TNEMUCOD EHT

However, when dir creates an isolation and each span as a
whole is treated by the containing paragraph like an object
replacement character, the display would be:

   c:\myfile.txtOpen:  :SYAS TNEMUCOD EHT
