I18N-ISSUE-51: On an OS that has a widespread UI convention for setting direction, user agent should support it on input and textarea elements [HTML5-bidi]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/51

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/#set-direction. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should recommended that on an OS that has a widespread convention for setting direction (such as CTRL + LEFT SHIFT for LTR and CTRL + RIGHT SHIFT for RTL on Windows), the user agent should support that convention on input and textarea elements (although it may provide other methods too).
