Comment 1 from 22326 didn't get cloned. Here it is:

Come to think of it, it would be best to make a small change in the section on
the dir attribute itself,
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/dom.html#the-dir-attribute. At the
very start, we have the following three paragraphs:

======
The ltr keyword, which maps to the ltr state
Indicates that the contents of the element are explicitly directionally
embedded left-to-right text.

The rtl keyword, which maps to the rtl state
Indicates that the contents of the element are explicitly directionally
embedded right-to-left text.

The auto keyword, which maps to the auto state
Indicates that the contents of the element are explicitly embedded text, but
that the direction is to be determined programmatically using the contents of
the element (as described below).
======

In the first two, the term "directionally embedded" would be best changed to
"directionally isolated".

In the the third, "explicitly embedded" should be changed to either
"directionally isolated" or "explicitly directionally isolated".
