Are these things used in plain text? I never saw one in a newspaper.

Of course for Runic and Egyptian there have been proposed "glyph reversers"
that affect the glyph but not the bidi directionality, but it seems no one
wants to hear about this kind of thing for plain text.

It would be nice if someone would discuss how to do it in any other way. Sigh.
