"Persisting and using" 
{ COMMENT: this phrase is awkward; I'm still trying to think of a "fix;" I may
try to use Aharon's wording elsewhere }
"A persisting state that incorporates the directionality of user input values
will prevent the values'
{ QUESTION do you mean "text" or "values" above? sorry to ask a dumb question
but what is going to be displayed?}
being displayed incorrectly on history traversal,
in cases where the user [has] originally entered the values with an explicit,
non-default directionality."


Best,
