You forgot the most important setting though - that the higher-order
protocols allow symbols to be displayed left-to-right. If the
direction should happen to be right-to-left, not only is the game
mirrored, but the board edges don't work properly, as the glyphs are
not mirrored. One needs each bidi-paragraph to be forced to the
correct order, e.g. by use of LRM before and after, or, if the board is
recorded right-to-left, RLM or ALM before and after.
