Suggestion for the CLDR online tools.

I saw that a new online tool allows testing the UBA implementation on

would be convenient that this hack supports an escaping character like
"\" to discard the hacked interpretation (notably for punctuations,

RTL contexts (base level 0 or 1) on the same output.
In that case, the two tables of the result, "Source" and "Reordered"
should be probaly indented with a left-margin of about 2em on the

The header titles of these two tables should also avoid using a
vertical separation with the table below it (the blue background would
be contiguous to
the blue background of the row headers below it). In fact they should
proably not be h3 elements but just table captions, because they are
contents related to the existting h3 section (whose heading shows the
paragraph number)

Below the h3 section for the paragraphe number, the small table
showing the initial embedding level would remain unindented, with the
two indented result tables below it.

We could then fit in the same h3 section the second test with the
other direction.

"LTR", but also "Both", to exhibit on the same page the two
