If you're going to quote an rtl phrase in an ltr context,
you want to use an embedding. In plaintext, this would
mean putting an RLE (U+202B) character before the phrase
and a PDF (U+202C)after it. (In HTML, you'd enclose the
text in an element and set its 'dir' attribute to 'rtl'.)
I don't know how to access those characters from the
word processor menus, though.
