> i don't know which is correct but using the old URL (with <html style="direction:ltr"> but RTL body), FF showed a horizontal scrollbar while WebKit did not.

The direction propagation in Webkit (when dir is set in root) is different from that in Firefox.

In Webkit "Direction and writing-mode should propagate from the <body> to the <html> to the ICB as long as the <html> hasn't explicitly set the direction or writing-mode." (from dhyatt),

while Firefox always propagate the direction from the <body> to the initial containing block even if the <html> has explicitly set the direction.

Please refer to description and comment #9 in bug 48157.
