I understood you meant the results. Perhaps we are seeing different results. Mine are consistent "555-2368”.
If you want I can send you screen shots.
Ah ok, I moved the number after the Arabic text in the search string and then the search flips the numbers around the hyphen.
For Hebrew ahead of the number it does not.

Sorry for the confusion.
Not the link itself, but the results, the found pages.
I search for “555-2368”.
With Hebrew letters, the display is “555-2368”.
With Arabic letters, the display is “2368-555”.
Look at the results.
And my other question

I write “1999-12-31”.
The display is “1999-12-31” with Persian digits.
The display is “31-12-1999” with Arabic-Indic digits.
