DescriptionThe "LEFT-TO-RIGHT EMBEDDING" directional formatting character is the classical Unicode method of explicit bidirectional formatting, and as of Unicode 6.3, is being discouraged in favor of LEFT-TO-RIGHT ISOLATE. An "embedding" signals that a piece of text is to be treated as directionally distinct. The text within the scope of the embedding formatting characters is not independent of the surrounding text. Also, characters within an embedding can affect the ordering of characters outside. Unicode 6.3 recognized that directional embeddings usually have too strong an effect on their surroundings and are thus unnecessarily difficult to use.
