           Summary: Need support for :dir() pseudo-class
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: aharon at google.com

Selectors Level 4 (http://dev.w3.org/csswg/selectors4/#dir-pseudo) specifies the :dir() pseudo-class (:dir(ltr) and :dir(rtl)), which allows the author to write selectors that represent an element based on its HTML5 directionality (see http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#the-directionality). This is a very useful capability for bidi support, even in implementing WebKit-based browsers' own controls (e.g. see http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=87045).

Note: this capability was originally proposed as :ltr and :rtl. This was eventually changed to the :dir(ltr|rtl) syntax.
