The default must be EITHER RTL or LTR. It cannot be both. So we
proposed the default to be RTL, and the user can use directional
overrides if he requires LTR directionality.
Revived Old Hungarian uses European punctuation (single and double
quotation marks, question mark, semicolon). It uses the REVERSED
QUESTION MARK and REVERSED SEMICOLON when in its ordinary RTL layout.
If directional overrides are used to effect LTR layout, the REVERSED
QUESTION MARK does not mirror, and the REVERSED SEMICOLON does not
reverse. The user must use QUESTION MARK and SEMICOLON in this case.
Szabolcs and Karl are (I believe) suggesting that Old Hungarian have
script-specific clones of European punctuation which *will* mirror
when directional overrides are used.
