That page is a bit old.  Unicode's reference implementation has
changed their CapRTL recently too.  So unfortunately you need to
check the bidi types and only then you can say who is right and
who is wrong.  I would be happy if you give examples that FriBidi
is not following the spec :).

i checked the refrence code's CapRTL with FriBidi'd they're the same. as u know, there was putty7.exe which used the refrence code as its bidi engine. so i compare that with my implementation using CapRTL and they have _Identical_ results. i used FriBidi's test file. but, putty7.exe (using the refrence code) and putty6.5.2 (using my code) have different results from that page.

for example:
the page says  -10% CHANGE -> EGNAHC -10%
but both putty7 and putty6.5.2  do this: EGNAHC %10-

so which one is correct ? which one does FriBidi do ?
