    That has nothing to do with encoding. It is purely an implemtation
    issue. If the digit codepoints have properly specified semantics, there
    is no problem. If you cut RTL digits from you editor and try to paste
    them into an LTR editor, it's a pretty simple matter for the receiving
    app to detect the directionality and adjust accordingly.
