Bidirectional text override
The bdo element encloses a phrase that should be rendered in an explicit direction, right-to-left or left-to-right.
Use the bdo element when a Hebrew or Arabic composition needs to use a phrase which is natively written using a Latin-script, or vice-versa.
Normally all text rendering direction decisions are handled automatically by the Unicode bidirectional algorithm, and the bdo element is not needed.
- The rendering direction for the enclosed text. When omitted, the rendering direction is always reversed from the surrounding text.
p The Arabic word for website is <<bdo موقع الكتروني>>
p The Hebrew word for website is <<bdo אֲתַר אִינטֶרנֶט>>
- The bdi element encloses a phrase that should employ the automatic Unicode bidirectional algorithm independently from its surrounding text.
