As far as I can tell, without explict directionality codes, there is no way to
get the result printed in the book. For some reason I had assumed this had
been fixed long ago. Staring at it for a while didn't result in any
epiphanies that would explain the result without explicit codes. The quote
should be wrapped in LRE-PDF.

I'm with Dave. If we are missing something, let us know.
