[Bug 15488] it makes no sense to limit the placeholder attribute to values of the same direction as the <input>

The examples could be made a bit more clear by adding a dir="ltr" to each of
the <input> tags (as would be typically done in an RTL page). Otherwise, they
are fine.

I am still unhappy about having to use LRE/RLE/PDF to indicate the overall
directionality of a placeholder. An attribsdir attribute as proposed by
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=16160 (a.k.a.
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17829) would be a better
solution to this problem.
