Here is a typical example:

Discovered two additional things:

1. Wrapping bidi-override around the whole index entry text solves the problem (this was Antenna House's response but I had misinterpreted the sample doc they sent and missed this solution at first.

2. It matters to AH whether or not the page number is literal text in the FO instance or a page-number-citation.

Here is an instance that produces the correct result using XSL Formatter:

  <fo:bidi-override unicode-bidi="embed" direction="rtl"
  >عندما English1 1a English2</fo:bidi-override>
  <fo:leader leader-length="1em" leader-pattern="space"
  /><fo:page-number-citation ref-id="bcdfr234566"/>

I'm still interested to know if there's a control character that changes the writing direction.
