Some people write Latin script more or less bottom to top with lines
left to right. But it is not normally read like that, unless perhaps you
are reading over someone else's shoulder. Direction of handwriting is
hardly relevant to Unicode as Unicode rendering is not actual
handwriting. What is relevant is the normal expected direction of reading.
