[Chrome] In RTL DIV container typing on the end is broken

Reproduced in Chrome.


  1. Create DIV container with RTL direction (Advanced tab -> Language Direction).
  2. Start typing

Result: New characters shows up on the right end. Expected: New characters shows up on the left end.

This is definitely a browser issue. We must also understand that we're testing it by typing LTR text into a RTL space. Maybe it works well with RTL text.

We need a ticket for it at the WebKit site, closing this one as CantFix after that.

Far from a bug, let the specification tells:

This attribute specifies the base direction of directionally neutral text (i.e., text that doesn't have inherent directionality as defined in [UNICODE])...

If a document does not contain a displayable right-to-left character, a conforming user agent is not required to apply the [UNICODE] bidirectional algorithm.

This could be easily proved by typing the following characters sequence to into a RTl div.
