HTML BDO Tutorial

The HTML bdo tag allows you to change the direction that text flows.

It's not very useful to those of us who create web pages in English unless you just like to mess with people, but it allows those whose native language reads from right to left to create web pages that read naturally to them.

The bdo tag is coded thusly:

<bdo dir="rtl">your text</bdo>

The only two choices for the dir (direction) attribute is rtl (right to left) or ltr (left to right).
