I18N-ISSUE-56: Script dialog text direction [HTML5-bidi]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/56

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/#script-dialog. Here is the proposal made there:

The HTML specification should state that plain text passed by page scripts without specifying an explicit direction to whatever services script languages provide for dialog display (e.g. Javascript's alert(), confirm() and prompt()) should be displayed according to the UBA's rules P1, P2, and P3, which estimate the direction of each paragraph according to its first strong character.

Please add comments to bugzilla:
