But they are left aligned and it is confusing and un-neighborly. And if you
have neutral characters or digits in the data (e.g. company name or
address), or worse if you have mirrored characters, it sometimes does not
work out at all unless you manually set it to RTL.
Let me put it differently: If you see the following as unreasonable, you
will see why "dir=rtl" is needed: From the point of view of a fair
proportion of the world, the default direction should be RTL. For those
users of the rest of the world, when they type Latin or other LTR letters
their data will go automatically from left to right.
