comment Save for Web in Illustrator clipping incorrectly!
Are you using the File > Save for Web dialog? That should force it to the artboard. Otherwise you can try converting your character to Outlines - it becomes a shape instead. Or in the character panel play with the line height if you don't want to covert it.

comment Do we perceive images in text reading direction?
Scott is spot on IMO. That is what makes the difference between art and design. You need to be mindful of the page (or image) elements and it is your job as designer to tell the viewer where to look first, then second etc. As design has a purpose other than to just "look pretty", your ultimate goal, often a call to action (button for example) needs to be one of the things drawing the initial focus from the viewer. This is also why neutral themes are popular in design. A white or mostly neutral page with a big green button gets you looking in the right place from the start.

comment Do we perceive images in text reading direction?
In this example my eyes are first drawn to the capitalized letters in the center/top. H then N particularly. They are larger and more visually interesting than an "I" or the series of surrounding "x" characters. I don't think there is a preset read direction, you are driving my eyes north westerly based on the appeal of what my eyes are drawn to, so after H and N, my view curls back around past the C then Y and down/around.
