Hi Mimasa,

A question has arisen during the ITS work.  Imagine a document where the context is rtl (eg. it has <html dir="ltr"...>). If we specify dir="lro" on a <ul> should the bullets appear to the right or the left? If dir="lro" appears on a <table> should the columns flow from left to right or right to left? etc

Any thoughts?

RI
