These tests check whether user agents apply the basic bidirectional algorithm to text in HTML and XHTML documents (with no markup or styling involved).
See the results below for user agents tested. This section summarizes the results of those tests. In what follows, 'HTML' means HTML4.01 or XHTML 1.0 served as text/html. XML means XHTML 1.0 or XHTML 1.1 served as application/xhtml+xml.
All tests worked as expected, ie. the basic bidirectional algorithm is applied correctly to text without markup or styling to bidirectional text for all browsers tested.
These are results for the latest versions of each user agent tested. A green background (yes) means that the assertion associated with the test held true; red (no) means that it did not; orange (partially) means that it was only partially true. To view the assertion, click on the text in the left column.
Results are given for four types of document format: H4 (HTML 4.01), XH (XHTML 1.0 served as text/html), X (XHTML 1.0 served as XML), X11 (XHTML 1.1, served as XML), but since all result were the same for the browsers tested, a single cell is used to represent all four test instances.
