HTML pages with their global direction set Right-to-Left and character set set
to ISO-8859-8 cause the English strings to be reversed as well.

When the charset is "visual" (such as "ISO-8859-8", "visual", "IBM862"), or one 
forced "Visual Text Type" from the View Menu, Right-to-Left direction in a 
block-level element must cause the entire text content of this element to be 
reversed (uncluding English strings).

So there is no bug... the attached testcase shows correct behaviour.

Mass-assigning the new rtl keyword to RTL-related (see bug 349193).
