I18N-ISSUE-52: When an input value is remembered, its direction should be remembered too [HTML5-bidi]


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/#remember-input-dir. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should state that whenever a user agent stores a user-provided <input> or <textarea> text value for later use (such as auto-completion), it should also store the nominal direction value the element had when displaying this value. This may be the original direction of the element, or may have been set by the user for that value via the user agent's UI, or may have been set for that value by page scripts. If the user agent later recalls and displays this value, e.g. in an auto-completion dropdown, it should be displayed in its stored direction. If the value is assigned to an element, the element's dir value should be set to its stored direction.

Please add comments to bugzilla:
