Ok so let me make sure I understand what you want changed here, so we don't
keep going around and around.

The _only_ change you now want to the dir="" section, is to replace these two
sentences in the dir=auto general case:

    Otherwise, if the element is a root element,
    the directionality of the element is 'ltr'.

    Otherwise, the directionality of the element is
    the same as the element's parent element's directionality.

...with these two sentences:

    Otherwise, if the element is empty and is not a root element, the
    directionality of the element is the same as the element's parent
    element's directionality.

    Otherwise, the directionality of the element is 'ltr'.

Is that exactly right?
