If a HTML DOM node contains a Unicode right-to-left override character (U+202E) the tag name of the closing tag is reversed as well. This could possibly be intended behavior, but I would prefer opening and closing tag to match. Only the content of the tag should change when including rtl or ltr overrides / embeddings.

This might be a duplicate of #200601.

Ultimately, we should display all Unicode BiDi characters as HTML entities, e.g. &#8238;.

A simpler CSS-only solution.

Fun fact, the reason Chrome has the feature is the request I made on Bug 93888 and unfortunately the change removed while Web Inspector UI revamp landed after Blink's fork, so I filed Bug 220831 and will try to fix it myself this time :)
