The reported behavior can be verified in IE only. The reason for it, much probably, is because LTR text is being written inside a RTL element. IE does it well, by moving the caret to the left, as soon as the LTR word finishes being typed.

To test it properly, you should type real RTL text and see the results. I'm sure it'll behave as expected.

Finally, this is a native browser behavior and even if we find out that it should not be like that, we would not be able to change it.

It's just because you're typing characters (English) that have by default left-to-right layout. You'll need a Hebrew keyboard layout to test this feature.
