I18N-ISSUE-48: Option element should support the dir attribute and be displayed accordingly both in the dropdown and after being chosen [HTML5-bidi]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/48

Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: HTML5-bidi

This is a part of the proposals made by the "Additional Requirements for Bidi in HTML" W3C First Public Working Draft. For a full description of the use cases, please see http://www.w3.org/International/docs/html-bidi-requirements/#option. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should explicitly state that the <option> element's computed direction will take its dir attribute (explicit or inherited) into account, and will be used to display the option's text in both the dropdown and after being chosen.

Please add comments to bugzilla:
