ISSUE-133: In-document reference for Unicode bidi

In-document reference for Unicode bidi

Raised by:
Addison Phillips
Opened on:
4.5.3 The pre element

There is some text about bidi in this section on the <pre> element:

A newline in a pre element should separate paragraphs for the purposes of the Unicode bidirectional algorithm. This requirement may be implemented indirectly through the style layer. For example, an HTML+CSS user agent could implement these requirements by implementing the CSS 'unicode-bidi' property

Should there be an in-document reference for Unicode bidi?
