I18N-ISSUE-32: rlo and lro attribute values [HTML5]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/32

Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: HTML5

3.2.3.5 The dir attribute
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/elements.html#the-dir-attribute

WG Approved: Yes


Please consider allowing two new attribute values for the "dir" attribute: 'rlo' and 'lro' for dir. You do not need to remove the bdo element, but the new values will allow content authors to proceed to a scenario we described in the ITS 1.0 specification[1], It will also provide some additional power to the authors, since they will be able to attach dir="lro" to a block element.
