The direction <https://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/#propdef-direction> property specifies the inline base direction of a box and, together with the unicode-bidi <https://www.w3.org/TR/css-writing-modes-3/#propdef-unicode-bidi> property and the inherent directionality of any text content, determines the ordering of inline-level content within a line.
