+LTR with embedded RTL, or vice versa, sounds like a job for
+the [[tips/Right-to-left___40__RTL__41___page_text]] tip or
+something very similar.

+https://html.spec.whatwg.org/#the-dir-attribute suggests that the
+`dir` attribute is meant to be sufficient, but perhaps it's overridden
+by an explict `text-align: left`?

+I don't think \"I know I am switching between English and Arabic,
+but I don't know which one I'm currently writing\" is a major use-case :-)

+It sounds as though the po plugin is not really what you want, and
+you'd be better off with being able to write
+`\[[!meta lang=ar dir=rtl]]` or something.
