 > > So, in an RTL language, as the current WordPress
 wp_get_document_title() function operates, the post name will be left and
 the site name on the right, regardless of LTR/RTL.
 > What Sergey mentioned above is that once the document title is displayed
 in the browser, the text will be displayed correctly because the browser
 will change text direction accordingly for RTL languages. Because of that
 there would be no need to do any array reverse or similar in PHP.

 So you're saying at all text is left-to-right, even if it's not, and that
 it's only when being displayed that the browser inverts all text in all
 strings for a right-to-left language, is that correct? ie. So for PHP, all
 text strings are left-to-right, regardless of the character code being
 used - the individual characters may get translated, but not the order of
 the characters, correct?
