--- Comment #8 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
IMHO believe => WFM is the more appropriate resolution. 

Input is correctly handled by applying the U+200E  LEFT-TO-RIGHT MARK [LRM]
with Insert -> formating mark, or Alt+X toggle provides expected typographical

The same Left-to-right mark/Right-to-left mark UNO commands are available to
assign to menu, toolbar button, context menu, or Keyboard shortcuts.

Though establishing a default keyboard shortcut _might_ be appealing for some

Otherwise enhancements of see also bug 58434 for showing formatting marks when
displaying non-printing characters remains to be implemented, still mostly as
in table of attachment 112798, would improve the UX by exposing use of the
Unicode control.
