Reversed letters; inverted (or rotated) letters

Letters that are reversed (e.g. right-to-left) or inverted (rotated) with respect to the alignment of the surrounding text. These characters are considered to be set apart from the main body of text by their changed orientation, and so are marked with the hi tag. This element should not be used to indicate text that is all written in reverse, or boustrophedon documents (for which see Direction of Text).
