Now as far as I had been informed, bidi was a matter of encoding and text
rendering, such that a document containing both LtR and RtL scripts could be
encoded in the order that they are *read* rather than the order that the glyphs
are displayed. I've never seen the term used to mean RtL. An extension of
bidi rendering, if I am not mistaken, permits vertical and horizontal scripts
to be laid out correctly, while maintaining the logical glyph ordering in the
raw document.
