--- Comment #16 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> ---
Ok. Well, first, type=tel dir=auto can be rtl always. (Maybe it should even be
rtl if dir="" is omitted entirely?)

I've made <textarea dir=auto> default to RTL if it contains RTL characters,
parent if empty, LTR otherwise.

How about other elements? What direction should this be in?

   <div dir=rtl>
     <div dir=auto>1.</div>
     RTLRTLRTL...
   </div>

...?
