unicode-bidi property

Browser support:
Specifies whether the text should be overridden to support multiple languages in the same document. Use with the direction property.
This property can override the Unicode standard algorithm of the browser that determines how text should appear when the page contains both RTL (right-to-left) and LTR (left-to-right) text.
JavaScript page for this property: unicodeBidi. You can find other example(s) there.

 One of the following values: 
Creates an additional level of embedding, but the reordering inside the element depends on the value of the 'direction' property.
Creates an additional level of embedding.
Takes the value of this property from the computed style of the parent element.
