Unicode-bidi

Control the inline direction of text.

Syntax
      unicode-bidi: bidi-override | embed | normal ;

bidi-override - The text to which this is applied will override the Unicode bidi algorithm according to the directional flow indicated by the direction property. For block-level elements, (table cells, table captions, or inline blocks), it creates an override for (some) inline-level descendants.
embed - The text to which this is applied will assume the directional flow indicated by the direction property.
normal - This value doesn’t offer an additional level of embedding with respect to the bidirectional algorithm. For inline elements, implicit reordering works across element boundaries.

Always use dedicated bidi markup to describe your content, where markup is available. Then CSS may or may not also be needed to describe the meaning of that markup.

Examples:
h1 { unicode-bidi: bidi-override; }
.ss64class { unicode-bidi: embed; }

#SS64id { unicode-bidi: lowercase; }

Try it:

Roman text is normally displayed in a left to right direction. وصغار موسكو المتّبعة لمّ ثم, وأزيز لإعلان دحر عل. به، وإيطالي التقليدية هو, مع جُل وبداية بالجانب. ان الدّفاع المتاخمة كان. عل بقصف بالحرب وهولندا، يتم. This is not always the case for foreign languages.
