Many thanks. Is there (Hans? Wolfgang?) available somewhere

1. a complete list of these environments whose typographical settings are  
decoupled from the rest of the document?

2. a complete list of those typographical settings (bidi, whitespace,  
etc,) which are have to explicitly setup for such environments?

If not, such lists should be compiled in lieu of trial and error -)

Best wishes
