--- Comment #4 from r12a <ishida at w3.org> ---
> New "isolate" directional formatting characters (LRI, RLI, FSI, PDI) that make it significantly easier to embed opposite-direction or unknown-direction text without having to determine its direction and without unduly affecting the order of the surrounding text.

Blink and Gecko browsers support these characters which are important for proper support of bidirectional text on the Web.  However, WebKit browsers such as Safari still don't support the badly needed behaviour.

See tests at https://www.w3.org/International/i18n-tests/results/bidi-algorithm#rli_etc

Any chance we can bring WebKit up to speed for the (literally) millions of RTL script users out there?  It should be high up in the list of priorities, in my opinion.

Fwiw, we are tracking this issue at https://www.w3.org/TR/adlm-gap/#issue10_bidi_text
