2.wait 10 seconds for the page to render
starting at line 1425, it starts scrambling the lines in the text in a haphazard way

css sheet for the unicode test
this is the css sheet for the unicode-test html for this bug
It's not clear to me that there's a layout bug here: You have characters in the document that have right-to-left directionality (see the Unicode standard), along with lots of neutral-direction characters that "adopt" the direction of the strongly-directional characters around them, so parts of the text getting "reversed" is expected. (And note that ‮ is the Right-to-Left Override character, which imposes R-L directionality on _all_ the following characters within your <pre> element, as there's no matching Pop.)
SeaMonkey 2.0.x is in maintenance mode, only security and stability fixes are allowed on this branch. Please retest with either SeaMonkey 2.1b2 or Firefox 4.0b12.
Some influence on neutral characters by directional characters is expected, but it shouldn't extend beyond the end of the line within a <pre>.
This is fixed on trunk by bug 263359.
