I also raised a new request for improvement for Edge, specifically 
requesting isolation support, at 
https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/32394604-support-bidi-isolation-for-elements-with-dir-attri

I have also added a couple of comments to 
https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/10784463-support-dir-auto, 
and upvoted that and 
https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/10492476--bdi-element

*Please upvote these improvement requests* if you are reading this and 
want to see Edge provide proper support for RTL scripts, like the other 
browsers do.

thanks,
ri

Richard,

Thanks for the chat about bidi-isolation support for dir=auto yesterday. 
As promised, I’m sending you a couple of links to the Microsoft Edge 
user voice, which is one source of feedback our team uses to gauge web 
developer interest in particular platform features (missing or 
speculative). It looks like there are two existing items posted there:

  1. Request for dir=auto support.
 
https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/10784463-support-dir-auto

This request strangely notes at the bottom that this feature should 
trigger bidi-isolation of the content, but that support is orthogonal to 
the core value of dir=auto

  2. Request for <bdi> element.
 
https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/257854-microsoft-edge-developer/suggestions/10492476--bdi-element

I didn’t see a specific ask (not tied to the above) for unicode-bidi: 
isolate.

Thanks,

-travis
