I got the impression from what I read that -e included additional control sequences, but perhaps I misunderstood and that only meant that the data stream was expected to *use* additional control sequences but the control codes themselves are part of the base codec?

I'm specifically thinking of this statement from the linked reference:

"Because HTML uses the Unicode bidirectionality algorithm, conforming documents encoded using ISO 8859-8 must be labeled as "ISO-8859-8-i". Explicit directional control is also possible with HTML, but cannot be expressed with ISO 8859-8, so "ISO-8859-8-e" should not be used."

The "cannot be expressed" seems to imply there are differences in the codec.
