Know of any invisible right-to-left characters in Unicode?

A common problem with right-to-left text and many text editors is that while the actual right-to-left characters are written right-to-left, the punctuation (nominally) following such a sentence is switched back to left-to-right mode again.

Does U+200F "RIGHT-TO-LEFT MARK Right-to-left zero-width character" work? There's a few others listed at UAX #9: Unicode Bidirectional Algorithm.

You don't want a \u200F. You want \u202C The Pop Directional Formatting character.
