He says the bidi package is loaded with the command \input bidi, but that command doesn't work (at least with my 2009 version of TeX Live) because xetex can't find the bidi file.  If I use the command \input bidi.sty xetex finds the bidi.sty file for xelatex not xetex. That's why I was wondering whether there wasn't another bidi.sty file available for plain xetex.
