Changes include the following:

* added a quick answer

* removed background sections now that we have other articles that deal 
with that information (pointed to those)

* clarified the distinction between structural/block markup and inline 
markup wrt control character usage in a new section

* expanded the section on inline issues to take into account 
HTML5-related developments

* introduced concept of isolation, including RLI/LRI/FSI/PDI

* removed out of date references and quotations

* introduced the concept of tightly-wrapping all opposite-direction 
phrases from the HTML article

* basically rewrote everything to make it cleaner, clearer and more snappy

* replaced outdated spec links and quotes

* added reference to polyglot

* pointed to the HTML5 rendering section rather than providing a CSS 
template (which was out of date) in the document
