    Note that you can make things simpler and cheaply, by just inserting a BiDi
    LTR override control (LRO) at the begining of each paragraph: BiDi will then
    consider all RTL letters after it as if they were LTR... Not good if you
    want to make your text searchable, but it works if it's only for rendering
    the text...
