Yes, IE, Chrome, and Safari do. By "set the dir attribute" I mean that both
element.dir and element.getAttribute('dir') now return the new value, either
'ltr' or 'rtl'.

Firefox and Opera, however, do not reflect the change of direction in the DOM
as far as I can tell; element.dir and element.getAttribute('dir') remain

Attaching an HTML file that demonstrates this.
