Text Direction Properties: DIRECTION and UNICODE-BIDI

There are many languages that read from right-to-left, such as Arabic and Hebrew, instead of the left-to-right more typical of European languages. When characters from both types of writing systems are present in a single document, it is known as bi-directional text: some text is to be read in one direction, and some in the other. The DIRECTION and UNICODE-BIDI properties are designed to help Web authors render this type of display on screen.

DIRECTION

Description: Sets the direction for the letters in the text to follow.
