    Nope, I don't think so. For example, you don't want
    to break the span neither in rtl text. Space is not a
    ltr nor a rtl char, is a separator (I think so, I will
    have to check the unicode appendix to see the exact
    terminology). There are also neutral characters
    (among others).

    I was suggesting to ignore neutral characters and
    separators, but I don't know if that's going to work
    well (the bidi algorithm is a relatively big beast,
    and we're better waiting for Tomas aproval on this
