 Hi All,

  considering the use of margin-left and margin-right in case of RTL 
languages , this two properties can create asymmetrical web pages
when the same page is used for all the regions. Even though author
intended to show space to in the left for LTR languages, it 
will not be symmetrical shown for RTL languages.

 Can a new CSS3 extension be added which will be interpreted depending
on the language setting of the client.  Like


which is interpreted as margin-left for LTR and margin-right
for the RTL languages.  The precedence will be of margin-left 
or margin-right if it is specified along with the margin-before.
