Confirmed, RTL is set to Table cell, not to its content:

	<td dir="rtl">

That is why content of a cell, copied and pasted outside of table is set to LTR. I think it was developer's intention, not a bug.

  • Status changed from confirmed to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Note that clipboard operation doesn't takes are of applied text direction in browser, try taking a line of text from some RTL web page and paste it into editor.
