--- Comment #1 from Javier Fernandez <jfernandez at igalia.com> ---
This issue is not reproducible on Firefox or Edge/IE because these browsers are reseting the selection boundaries (at least the values returned by focus/anchor offsets) after applying the style change.

We don't do that, which I guess it's fine. However, I don't see any reason why we should forget about the previous selection direction. 

The attached case applies a new style to a portion of the text, which cause the DOM tree to change so the new styled text has it's own now. Hence, the selection  boundaries are adapted to the new DOM Tree. However, as I said, there is no reason why they should not respect the initial direction.
