Updated tests: HTML and CSS and text direction

Continuing the work of repackaging the tests in the Internationalization test suite around 87 more tests, this time relating to right-to-left and bidirectional text have been updated. Each of the 87 tests are implemented for HTML 4.0, XHTML 1.0 served as text/html, XHTML 1.0 served as XML, and XHTML 1.1 served as XML (ie. totally around 350 test cases).

There are also tables covering the results of the tests, and summaries of the findings. Most of these are new. The tests were run on recent versions of major browsers.

The tests and results are linked from here:

Text direction tests

(Note that the vertical text tests are not included in this announcement, since they are still in the early stages of development.)
