Number ordering

Recent experimentation with bidi reordering algorithms brings up some
questions. I am told (by native speakers) that the expression "-10%" is
written "%-10" in Persian and "%10-" in Arabic. How is it written in Hebrew?
Thaana? Syriac? Are implementers using explicit bidi codes to reorder
expressions like this?
