I18N-ISSUE-47: Title and alt attribute direction and two new attributes: titledir and altdir [HTML5-bidi]


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/#title-and-alt. Here is the proposal made there:

Support two new attributes, titledir=ltr|rtl|auto and altdir=ltr|rtl|auto that, when present, specify the title and alt attributes' direction, respectively. (The values should have the same meaning as for the dir attribute, including the "auto" value's reliance on the autodirmethod's value.) In titledir's and altdir's absence, respectively, title and alt attribute text will be displayed in the element's computed direction, as should be stated in the specification.

Please add comments to bugzilla:
