  • <bdo> and dir=

    Hello,
    I am very confused about the 'dir' attribute and the <bdo> element. The W3C spec isn't too clear either.
    Some sources suggest that the 'dir' attribute, which can be used in most tags changes the direction of the text; however it only changes alignment and punctuation placement. When used within the <bdo> element, however, it does change the text direction.
    Could someone please explain the use of this element and the attribute.
    Thanks

    And another confusion...

    Hi again,
    I found a couple more strange things, none of which I have ever learnt are true and none of which I could prove. One is that the div element is "strictly an organizational tool, without any sort of formatting associated with it. Yet I use it to make floating menus, etc, using CSS. The other is that the span element is deprecated. I never knew that!
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks again
    Benoni
