Handa-san is currently trying to plug the sequential implementation of
UAX#9 that I wrote into the Emacs display code.  The code I wrote
renders "H-5" as "-5H", as per UAX#9.  One needs to type "H-{RLM}5"
to get the "H-5" result that most Hebrew users want.

I guess we will need to get used to type RLM and LRM in similar
situations, since we must be UAX#9 compliant, and since UAX#9 results
in such madness in quite a few cases like this, sigh.
