> In a <textarea> with style="unicode-bidi: plaintext" the direction of each paragraph is supposed to be detected automatically. Currently all the paragraphs are aligned to the same side, even if their directionality is identified is different from that of the other paragraphs. It would make more sense to align RTL paragraphs to the right and LTR paragraphs to the left. This is how it is rendered in some Linux plain text editors that support RTL text and in Mozilla - currently "unicode-bidi: plaintext" is implemented in Firefox 10, which is the nightly test release.

Should this happen on any element that doesn't specify text-align or direction? Are there relevant specs that specifiy this behavior?
