Ahh, ummm, that's not good.  I'm still misunderstanding LRO. :-(

What we need is to display (only capital letters are Hebrew):
    ... | HEB REW | ABC DEF | ...
    ... | BEH WER | CBA FED | ...

If none of LRO..PDF, LRE..PDF work, and if there's no easy
way to determine when to insert LRM, the only way is to
insert LRMs unconditionally.
