Consider an HTML document written in an RTL language, displayed on a LTR user
agent and platform.  If the user agent chooses to follow the platform default
direction for script dialog text, any text on dialogs launched from this HTML
page will have the incorrect base direction, and hence could be affected by
text rendering problems.
