== Should also mention ALM beside LRM and RLM ==
In 5.2.5 ALM (U+061C ARABIC LETTER MARK) should be mentioned as well:

- In the caption: "RLM and LRM" ==> replace with "RLM, ALM, and LRM"

- "A word about the Unicode characters U+200F RIGHT-TO-LEFT MARK (RLM)
 and U+200E LEFT-TO-RIGHT MARK (LRM) is warranted at this point."
==> "A word about the Unicode characters U+200F RIGHT-TO-LEFT MARK
(RLM), U+061C ARABIC LETTER MARK (ALM), and U+200E LEFT-TO-RIGHT MARK
(LRM) is warranted at this point (unless is used to force base
direction when is based on first-strong heuristics)."

- "The first point to be clear about is that neither RLM, nor LRM
establish the base direction for a range of text.  They are simply
invisible characters with strong directional properties."
==> "The first point to be clear about is that none of the RLM, ALM,
or LRM establish the base direction for a range of text.  They are
simply invisible characters with strong directional properties."

- "Of course, if you are detecting base direction using first-strong
heuristics then RLM and LRM can be useful for setting the base
direction where the text in question begins with something that would
otherwise give the wrong result, eg. "
==> "Of course, if you are detecting base direction using first-strong
 heuristics then RLM, ALM, and LRM can be useful for setting the base
direction where the text in question begins with something that would
otherwise give the wrong result, eg. "

That said, it should be mentioned that "ALM is still not widely
supported."
