The bdi (bidi isolate) element, added in HTML5 to ease inserting RTL text into an LTR page or vice-versa. I do not know if it will be supported in IE10, and I am not sure how far back its current support in WebKit and Firefox goes.

As a developer I'd want answers to 2 "big" questions:
I'm aware of 4 ways that are supposed to trigger bidi isolation:
It seems that (1) and (2) have roughly same support [basically everyone except IE] and I'd expect to see them on same page; any differences can be covered by footnotes.
(3) probably deserves a separate page. While currently all but usual IE/Edge suspects have [prefixed only!] support, it might have landed in different versions than dir=... and bdi triggering isolation?
(4) Is discouraged, doesn't interact well with markup and CSS. Quick testing suggests it only works on Firefox. I also suspect support will depend on OS and not just browser. IMHO it's fine to omit.
