    126126          This often makes it easier to understand examples, and readers are therefore strongly advised
    127127          to consult these versions in preference or as a supplement to the ASCII version.</t>
     128        <t>This document contains bidirectional examples. In order to correctly understand
     129           the examples, it is important to view this document with a tool that
     130           correctly implements the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm <xref target="UNI9"/>.
     131           Most many text viewers and text editors, and most browsers, currently implement
     132           the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm, but there are some exceptions.
     133           In order to check whether a tool implements the Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm,
     134            please observe the line of Hebrew characters below:</t>
     135           <t><span dir='ltr'>א, אב, אבג, אבגד ,אבגדה, אבגדהו</span><t/>
     136           <t>If the shortest word (one letter) is on the right, and the longest word (six characters)
     137           is on the left, and the words get longer and longer from right to left,
     138           and the commas are between the words, but on the right of the spaces,
     139           then your tool should be okay. Otherwise, please use another tool.
     140           Please note that the example is only in Hebrew because in Arabic,
     141           it is difficult to count characters for people who are not familiar
     142           with the script.</t>
