Not sure if this is the appropriate place to say this, but: I seem to 
have found a problematic interaction (aka bug?) between the bidi package 
and the amstext package.

Here's a minimal example:



V $_{\text{[high, low]}}$


I would of course expect the words "high" and "low" to come out in that 
order in the PDF.  Instead, they come out in reverse order, something 
     low] [high,
If I leave out the fontspec package in the above code, the resulting 
output is even stranger:
     ]wol ,hgih[

I'm not sure why it's necessary to load the biblatex package in the 
above, but if I don't then xelatex complains:
     ! Undefined control sequence.
