Thanks Michael, this is clear;  this is sort of what I understood  (but really my understanding comes from the directionality algorithm--which because some characters may have only weak directionality, is a bit different). 

Thanks to Randy and Peter too for their explanations.


I am open to a comment; I don't feel it's that necessary because the sort of tagging that Randy does not like will not break any applications . . . 


(Which is all I'd really worry about)

(O.k., like pronoun reference, which is really inherited generally from the nouns/pronouns in the preceding clause or whatever . . . but this is another topic )
