It gives an inkling.  However, I don't understand, "The
underlying order of characters, and the typing order remain the same."
The text of Figures 4 and 5 has to differ by more than the language
tagging.  Is this a corruption of an example which had (Near Eastern)
Arabic numerals for Figure 4 and Eastern Arabic numerals for Figure 5?

Supporting quotations would help, as this example looks weird.  Are
Persian number ranges calqued from European languages?
