Case 2 is the correct one.
The easiest way to think of it is: you break text into lines and *then* lay out text on each line (see Section 3.4).
Imagine trying to read text that was written like your first option. As proof, imagine *just* the RTL section by itself (with the same line break). What would happen if RTL text were written that way?
