Ambiguity on 8859-* and bi-directionality

1994-07-11 19:34:25
It seems to me that thee definitions on ISO-8859-* are ambiguous
in RFC1521 and draft-ietf-822ext-mime-imb-00. Perhaps, ISO-8859-*
is intended to be used with 8 bit without designating escape sequences.
But there is no such description.

Treatment of bi-directional text is also ambiguous. The following

        The default handling of bi-directional text is in visual
        mode [RFC1556].

should be added. Note that the bi-direcitonality issue is not
8859 specific. There can be bi-directional US-ASCII text.
